Spencer's Banjo Adventure Post 18

Hello! This week in frustration with the banjo I decided to pick up my old trumpet, or technically a coronet, and see what I remembered. Turns out it is like riding a bike, pretty hard to forget. After a few tries at playing something it all started coming back to me and I had a lot of fun going through old music of mine and seeing if I could play it or not. It was a fresh change to the usual banjo practice I have had and it was a good way to take my frustrations with the banjo off my mind. I always loved the trumpet, though band class wasn't really for me, and it was a lot of fun this past week to get back in to playing my trumpet. That's all for now!


  1. Sometimes when things get frustrating, its great to go back and do something to remember why you love music! That was a perfect way to still be immersed in music without continuing to get frustrated. Do you play any other instruments or do anything else musically that you love?

    1. I play trumpet, am learning banjo, and I sing regularly in choir and at my church. Though I do not enjoy choir as much as I used to, singing and the other two instruments I play really do make me happy

    2. That's awesome! I used to sing in my church choir as well!
