    Very cool. I thought I started early in 3rd grade, lol! daaaaang.

    I wonder how everything will turn out physically when he gets bigger. But I guess i was still pretty small in 3rd grade, but at least a little bigger and more developed muscles.

    They should have him play at ITG, ,hehe.

    How great is that!!!

    If you haven't seen the video please do.
    He has these beautiful eyes to boot.

    Lets do the math, does Chris Martin have enough time to get a good career in with the CSO? :lol:

    Charlie Geyer began at age 5 and seemed to turn out OK. LOL. (one of my favorite players of all time)

    That might be the beauty of our instrument, Collin. As he grows and has larger lung capacity, the airstream will change and his embouchure will adjust and form naturally. Many middle school children go through this with braces and other dental issues and tend to get through it all right. Awwww....I feel bad though. When he's missing those two front teeth and the many others that will form holes in the front row, you're right, he won't be able to play. Awwww...... :cry:

    You know....I bet you some genius dentist will find a way to keep him going.....you watch.

    BINGO! I have the answer. Have an "invisiline" (type of invisible braces) mouthguard made and it will simulate having a full set of teeth until they grow in. Of course, there are some design issues to figure out as the teeth lengthen, but the answer hovers around something like that.

    What do you know, our very own attractive, cigar smoking, social drinking, wonder woman of trumpet playing is also able to solve dental issues not yet encounted in a single post.

    Alex, you never cease to amaze me! :wave:


    I am not worthy indeed! :bleah:
