I practice in the bathroom sometimes. It's a nice echoy enviroment...It's like playing in a small hall for me. I tried practicing picc in there once, but it didn't like my ears ><. I have a hard time in places that absorb sound, I often think I'm not getting the full tone that I know I can produce. ...

Circular breathing to me is just usless. My band director sees it as a party gimmick or something like that... only useful if you want to impress people by saying "I can hold a note out FOREVER!!"

Hmm, well thanks for the advice.

If all else fails, I'll just have to learn to play the wooden Yamaha one we have at our school.

Metal V.s Wood Piccs

Which is best for what?

I intend on playing a few peices on piccolo next year, and I really like metal piccs because of how they feel and it's easier for me to get a good sound out of. Wooden ones tend to be a bit harder for me. :/

Next year we're doing Cirque Du Solie: Quidam.

My high school has a drum corps... so there's a lot of transposing to do. \

Instead of bringing our corners out, like smiling, bring them in

That's what my private teacher basically told me when I first started with her in January.
