    "DON'T" (with apostrophe) isn't a god of the trumpet world...

    if you can't (with apostrophe) spell these names you have no business holding a trumpet...

    Has TM become an elementary grade spelling class? In the age of computers we all make typographic mistakes vis most were never taught to type (I wasn't). This medium is communication as matters not how we spell, just that what is written is understood.

    Since when did you have to be able to write to play a trumpet? Wilhelm Reiche, one of the greatest trumpet players of the Baroque era and possibly of all times, was illiterate... quite a few composers were able to write music, yet were unable to sign their own names... in his six known signatures, William Shakespeare used five different spellings of his name (and "Shakespeare" is not among them)...

    In Wagner's opera "Meistersinger" there is a character I've been reminded of by your almost constant whining: "Beckmesser" is the totally untalented guy who can't produce anything worth while himself, but drags everyone else's work into the dust for minute violations of the rules.

    And there's one more thing: "Critics are like eunuchs: They know how it's done, but can't do it themselves..."
