The guy in the middle is Lewis Kahn and the guy on the far end is Barry Rogers.  Quite an all-star section.

Note that all 3 are holding the slide near the bottom of the brace with no more than 2 fingers and the thumb.

Trump Says Obama Didn’t Call Families Of Fallen Soldiers, Quickly Walks It Back

But only after a reporter called him on it.

A reporter followed up with Trump later in the press conference, prompting Trump to walk back his claim and say that he “was told” that Obama didn’t call the families of fallen soldiers.

I'd like to know who "told" him that.

Stephen Miller?
The Enquirer?
A painting on the wall?

Why would he ask if it was original if he knew it was a copy?  Don't know

To confirm his suspicion that Trump would tell people it was real?

I'm pretty sure he had the skb and got a rath. He's just saying the raths wingnut is the reason it won't fit. Not that Michael Rath is a bad designer for not making a horn that can fit in a particular case

Donald Trump’s Fake Renoir: The Untold Story

Years ago, while reporting a book about a real-estate developer and reality-TV star named Donald Trump, Tim O’Brien accompanied his subject on a private jet ride to Los Angeles. The plane, as you can imagine, was overly ornate; hanging on one wall, for instance, was a painting of two young girls—one in an orange hat, the other wearing a floral bonnet—in the impressionistic style of Renoir.

Curious, O’Brien asked Trump about the painting: was it an original Renoir? Trump replied in the affirmative. It was, he said. “No, it’s not Donald,” O’Brien responded. But, once again, Trump protested that it was...

Here's a free lesson in slide technique from The Trombone Forum's own Sam Burtis (sabutin):

He's the one closest to the camera when the solos start. Everything you're asking about is demonstrated at a high level in this video.

I don't want to give you bad advice, just an alternative way of thinking. You can ignore this of course if it's not helpful.

I did not like high school very much at all. I knew quite early on that I wanted to play trombone after high school so I never understood or took any interest in classes that I didn't think had any relevance.......

I don't know what the entry requirements for trombone are at the schools you are looking at applying to, but when I did it, it was just an average Mark in English as well as a specific live audition for the school.
I personally never understood why people made such a big deal out of high school.... even if you do terribly in your end of high school exams, there are ways to get into courses and institutions you want through other means. I have friends who essentially failed several end of high school exams who have ended up very successful in their chosen fields. I got very ordinary marks myself at the end for everything not trombone related. I got into various good schools for trombone throughout my studies post high school, and won scholarships based on merit or audition at basically every university I went to.

Whilst I haven't made a mint in savings, I have managed to survive the last several years paying my own rent, food, and fees solely through trombone performance (and a tiny bit of teaching). I recently left my country to continue study at an extremely high level music school in the states.

I guess what I am saying is that I really do not see any point in making your life overly busy with things you don't want to do while you are in high school. High school means pretty much nothing in the real world.......

A lot of adults (My parents included!) Will talk about how not doing well in high school will "close so many doors" (I used to HATE having that said to me!) But if you know all the doors you want to go through are trombone shaped maybe consider just doing what it required to get through those specific doors?

Up to you of course, you know what is best for you. Hope you can balance your schedule in a way that works!

......what it looks like to be a real Performance Major and musician.......willing to do what others won't risk.....All in on Trobone, and betting his life on it.......the only way to be truly successful and happy in this world.
