I've played flute and piccolo for almost 21 years now. That's an insane amount of my life that I have dedicated to this one specific thing. The very thing that gave me many years and memories of concert band and marching band, most of my closest friends, and the first thing to get such long-term love and commitment from me.
When ninth grade came, I had to choose between chorus and band because they were during the same class period. It was the hardest decision to make due to my love of everything music, but I chose band. I figured that I can sing anywhere and anytime, but band was my special escape. It got me away from all of my stressors and problems. It gave me a safe place to be myself and around like-minded people. It gave me once in a lifetime experiences like marching in Disney World parades and winning trophies at competitions. Music brings me out of my shell. It did then and it still does today.
If there's one thing I remember about band besides being super hot in those uniforms on the trips to Florida, it would be freezing at late football games and competitions. Both extremes (plus the constant practicing) did not do my lips any favors. It's too bad something like ChopSaver did not exist then, but we are lucky it exists now!
ChopSaver can be purchased at CVS locations and online. You can even get a free sample and only pay shipping. There's a shipping calculator on the cart page and they accept various types of payment.
