Missteps from a misspent youth
Just for fun, here's a pdf file of Old Baldy, the first of three marches written -- and never played -- during my first year in High School, a year in which it became clear that marching band and I could get along just fine without one another; my subsequent martial experiences have been negligible (my days as an ROTC instructor excepted, but that's another very strange story for another day). The piano reduction was made from the set of parts, without any further editing. Old Baldy, in case you're curious, is the familiar name for Southern California's Mt. San Antonio.
