Larry DuPree, a member of Taps150 and BAA, is teaching new buglers in Cincinnati to sound Taps as the call as written. The current class consists of Ohio Military Honor Guard members of the Army and Navy, a Marine League Honor Guard member and others interested in providing “Live” Taps. The course is 6 months long, meeting once a week for the first month and monthly thereafter.
The course covers the story of Taps, embouchure development, breathing exercises and mental tips to enhance performance. Guest musicians will be invited periodically.
Larry is an Air Force veteran and continues to serve by sounding Taps at military funerals.
Horns for the current class were donated by Bugles Across America.
