Las Cruces, N.M., native Staff Sgt. Douglas Quinzi (center), a French horn player with the United States Marine Band, commonly referred to as The President’s Own, gives pointers to horn players of 2nd Marine Division Band during a lesson April 11. Members of The President’s Own spent the week mentoring 2nd Marine Division Band Marines before the two groups performed together at a concert April 13. Quinzi relished the opportunity to work with the division Marines.::r::::n:: “It’s fun to just focus on your craft and just talk to other people who are into it as much as you are, and with the Marine bands, they’re so motivated – I’ve worked with high school groups, college groups in the band and outside, but nobody’s motivated like Marines,” said Quinzi. “They’re very welcoming and just anything that you want to work on or talk about, they just seem really into it.”
