People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Each note played with a sousaphone
    Makes rich sounds like I’ve never known;
    But I hope to be,
    Unmindful of how it was blown.

    Crescendos, it just seems to me,
    Help many a weak melody.
    Unless you are certain
    Remember the curtain –
    Embouchure is surely the key.
