    I'm a comeback player and I went back to the beginning.

    Went to the music store, bought "Standard of Exellence" book 1 and 2

    the latest edition has iPAS software, and that could be fun too.

    I also found a few hymnals for Bb intruments online and ordered them. So I have plenty of sheet music that I know the way it needs to sound.

    I have these forums. TM is the forum I use the most. Good information/experiences from others. I don't get involved in the disputes and controversial postings. Other than that its good.

    Oh yes, I did take several months lessons from the music store instructor a bit a go and that really helped.

    Get a teacher, clarke studies, arbans. A teacher would tell which he/she would prefer for you specifically.

    Get a teacher that works with comeback players. There are many good beginner books out there. I use the Breeze-Easy method with my students. Standard of Excellence is a nother good one. Check out the Music Minus One web site for play along books. They have a lot of easy ones. Makes it more fun. I've written a paper on trumpet maintenance. I'll be glad to send it to you.
