Kids are the best critics

This morning I was practicing for an orchestral bass trombone audition. Several of the excerpts are pretty loud. Whenever I would get to one of those, my 2 year old daughter would come in and say, “too loud!”

I’m not sure if that means I am achieving my goal of a real rich beautiful fortissimo, or if it means that I am being an insensitive bonehead. Let’s hope for the former.
