North Carolina: Scouts honor the service and sacrifice of a 14 year James Gillies —“a beardless, unarmed youth”—was the bugler for American General "Light Horse" Harry Lee. During an impromptu reconnaissance mission, Gillies was killed by the British Army near the current-day Oak Ridge/Summerfield town limits on Oak Ridge Road. Interesting video interview with scouts including scout bugler: https://myfox8.com/news/buckley-report-the-story-of-a-bugler-boy/ More at source link: https://www.summerfieldnc.gov/index.asp?SEC=C3FB91F1-C656-4336-B855-D9948EAC060A&DE=EE3B
My son is a First Class scout working on Star. He took the position of responsibility of Bugler and has been practicing for a couple of months once every few days. As of this point, he can play one (maybe two) notes only. So my questions: 1) Any advice on getting him to the point of being able to play? He has looked at Youtube videos and online advice. His father, a brass player, has tried to help as well. My son does play the clarinet quite competently but this seems to be a whole other animal... 2) At what point should he say to the Scoutmaster that this isn't working out?
