What kind of expectations or goals did you set for yourself coming into the National Matches this year?
This was the first summer I had ever worked full-time, and as such it was really tough to find time to practice.
I didn’t put any pressure on myself this year to shoot a particular score in any of the matches, and I think this allowed me to relax and focus on what I needed to do.
I concentrated on my fundamentals of breathing and trigger control, and didn’t let myself get distracted by thinking about what my scores were in between stages of the matches.
Within a year, I was regularly sitting 1st or 2nd chair in the trumpet section, and I started to realize that music became more fun as I got better at it!
By far, the most challenging part of the matches for me is the mental game.
How did you become involved with the University of Michigan band?
The day I went to the music store to buy my first trumpet, my mom (who also studied at U of M), showed me a video of the Michigan Marching Band.
I’ve never felt any pressure from my dad to compete at as high a level as I do, just the pride and joy of a father who gets to share something he loves with his boys.
Going back to the 2018 National Matches, you had an incredible showing – a National Record and a number of High Junior honors.
