    Hi Everyone,

    As mentioned earlier I am from India and crazy about the trumpet. My problem is that even though I have been trying to locate trumpet players around here for the past few months I have not come across a single one. :-o That said, it is impossible for me to find a teacher or school that teaches the trumpet. Guitar/piano/drums, keyboard teachers are all around the place. What I wanted to know was if it is possible to self teach yourself the trumpet. I understand that there are a lot of things that can go wrong, posture, embouchure, intonation etc. Is there even a slight chance of me picking up the instrument myself? I do have a few books that might help but am scared of doing stuff the wrong way and messing up my chances of playing the trumpet correctly.:dontknow:

    If there is anyone from around here on the forum I would really appreciate it if you could point me towards a teacher and also a place that might stock/sell used instruments.

    Thanks.
