Yes...I'm talking to you.
You know...the one who "forgot" to practice all summer.
It's ok...you can come out from where you've been hiding, because I am JUST as guilty as you are.
In fact, when I was in Jr. High and High School (do they even call it Jr. High anymore??) I don't think I EVER took my flute out of the case during the summer months unless it was a Fourth of July parade...
Add that to one year in the color guard (don't judge...) and two years as a drum major...sometimes it would be November before I really played my flute! Eek!
The only thing that saved me, I have to say, was taking private lessons. Even if I did lose a lot over the summer, seeing my flute teacher every week really boosted my motivation to, well, not suck anymore. :)
Don't be that guy! Contact me today to get those beginning of the year lessons started!
Here's a throwback to my high school years---My dad and me posing before a concert. Did I mention that he was my band director?? :) Fun times. Looking back (literally), I really should have heeded the advice on that motivational poster behind me...
