First find a teacher. What approach? Wear soft sole shoes (we teachers get spooked easily), The in between your 5th and 4th finger (where your grip is weakest) tuck in a $100 bill, as trumpet teachers (like me) like to get as big of a tip from our students as we give to them in knowledge. That's my recommendation to you as to what approach you need to take. By the way, welcome to TM. PS: If you thing this was a touching, humanistic welcome, you can send a $20 thank you note my way. PM me for the address.
