I joined School of HONK to be able to play trombone after not having played for a number of years. But in the year and a half that I’ve been with the band, it’s become so much more than that. School of HONK and the HONK community in general is an amazing group of people and I’m so happy that I’m able to be a part of it. I had played trombone through high school, but stopped in college and for a couple of years afterwards. Playing with School of HONK has left me kicking myself for stopping in the first place! Plus, after playing trombone for a while, I’ve been able to branch out and learn the sousaphone as well, which is a ton of fun.
