Mills Music Store, Lynnwood

Posted by glennled on September 9, 2009

Recently, I met the highly personable, enthusiastic Dan Niven, manager of the Mills Music Store in Lynnwood. Turns out that he plays trombone in the Husky Alumni Band at UW football games. It’s organized by the Husky Marching Band Alumni Association (HMBAA), www.hmbaa.org. I’m a “Hum’-ba” member, too, and am looking forward to playing at the Arizona game at Husky Stadium on 10 October. “See you at the Horseshoe!” he says to me. At the store, there are studios where instructors teach private lessons. For those students who prefer it, we can meet there for our sessions. It is located at 20505 Highway 99 (east side of the road), telephone 425-775-6500. Great place to rent or buy your instrument, music books, supplies and accessories. It’s one of 11 Mills Music stores. Try them!

School’s Almost Here–Get Ready!

Posted by glennled on August 14, 2009

My first new student for the new school year lives in Ballard and is already on the horn, taking weekly lessons, practicing and having fun learning new techniques and songs! He’s gonna be good, if he keeps it up. He’s a quick learner, has a natural emboucher, likes music, is curious about how his cornet works and should be maintained, and is excited about playing it. Watch out, he’s improving fast!

Remember: wherever you are on the learning curve, you can always improve, and with help, you can improve faster than trying to do it alone. The better you are, the more fun it is. The composers wrote the music, your horn can perform it…now, can you play it? Say yes!
