I started taking lessons on the cornet in 4th grade.  When I moved to Waterloo in 8th grade I started in the band.  When Mr. Piersol left I started taking lessons from Mr. Baker.

Our sophomore year I was the biggest, i.e. tallest, kid in band.  I was out for football but never dressed for the game.  Mr. Baker switched me to the Bass Horn.  About halfway through the football season I finally figured it out.  Mr. Baker needed somebody to carry the 23 pounds of brass  all over the football field.  I dropped out of band.   - Don -
