I saw this commercial on TV about this guy that started a Brass band for kids in New Orleans. It got me thinking about Guam. Guam has a serious lack of brass players. GTB is great, but GTB has always lacked brass players too. So I thought, hay what if I start a brass band??
In addition to my 5 year plan, here’s where I’d like to see myself 5 years from now:
- Day Job (9am-3pm): Web work (programming/meetings/etc)
- M/W/F: Brass Band 4pm-6pm (after school program)
- Saturdays: Teach a Maximum of 8 lessons
- Sundays: Off
I think my Brass Band will be all for beginners and I’ll buy all the instruments so that parents don’t have to invest too much. I’ll invest more in lower brass because that’s what Guam is really lacking. The good people will feed into GTB once ready. I think I’m slowly working out of my private lessons phase and I want to work on a group basis soon… Hopefully I can get the funding soon to rent out a place that’ll accommodate it.
