Classically trained musician (horn player for almost 20 years in all sorts of ensembles/groups) and composer with two degrees in the field (B.M. and M.M. with focus on Music Theory and Composition), I decided to do these writeups as a means to share my expertise and experiences with bands over the past 20+ years to heighten your viewing experience of Kyoani’s Sound! Euphonium / Hibike! Euphonium. I also want to draw attention to the incredible love and care put into this series that you may not appreciate should you not have the insight or extensive experience with band programs that I have.
