Name:
Joel Hughes McKay

2 - The Written Word:
The moon shimmers black in the sky / Behind it, the sun\'s acting shy / But I\'m not afraid / For I know being made / Is a horn on which I can rely

3 - Want, Need, Should:
At the end of Year 2 studying trumpet at university, I changed my embouchure and started anew to accommodate, eventually, the performance of more advanced music. While it has helped me overall, my \"chops\" still aren\'t nearly what they used to be despite Caruso\'s assistance. A new trumpet, to replace the one I bought out of some guy\'s basement on Kijiji, while requiring another adjustment, would aid in the development of my new embouchure, and on a student budget this is simply not feasible. Also, as you can see in the picture, mine is currently stuck in a snow bank.
