What is your favorite Christmas song to play / listen to?
Joy to the World, even though it's also an Easter song.

How old were you when you first started playing and what instrument was it?
The first instrument I played was the piano. I started that in Kindergarten. I was about 5 years old. I didn't start playing the trombone until the 5th grade when I was 10 years old.

Other than playing your instrument, what are your hobbies?
Basketball!! I'm a huge fan of the game and playing the game. P.S. - I'm not a fan of the NBA lockout.

What advice would you give a beginner?
Practice outside of class time. Don't JUST play the entire piece. Practice small sections at a time.
