Photos of Customers with their Serpents.
~ 07/26/2008 ~ We want your happy mug here ~
A couple customers have sent photos of themselves and their serpents. We have asked if we can place them here and we would love for everyone who has purchased an instrument to do the same. Note: these are not my photos so if you want to use one of these images, please contact me and I will try to put you in touch with the images owner.
Keith Ryder is shown above playing #14, walnut trim and a boxwood mouthpiece. We need to ask him for more details about this shot so we can explain why he is playing his serpent in this wonderful garb. Notice that Keith is playing under-handed with his left hand.
Dr. Dennis Askew is shown above with #9, African Blackwood trim and mouthpiece. Dennis is Professor of Tuba and Euphonium and Music Education at UNCG and is also the current president of the International Tuba and Euphonium Association (ITEA). Dennis is working up to using his serpent in a recital setting and also uses it for "show and tell" at music workshops and conferences.
