    Thanks guys, I appreciate it. She really is amazing. By the time she's in her 30's she'll be jaw-dropping outstanding, and she's pretty close now.

    Yes, maybe. 35 years ago during the Women's Liberation movement that remark would have been decried as chauvanistic and very politically incorrect for the times. I admit to retaining some of the reorientation impressed upon me then. I need to remember to take my own advice and not read too much of my own stuff into another's post. Certainly things have loosened up a lot now and I apologize to HSOtrumpet1 and the rest of you for the tone of my comment. You're right, she is really good.
    And when you are that good at 20 you probably aren't offended easily.

    Ok ok ok, she is one year in age past her teens, so "girl" is not accurate, but let's be realistic, how many excellent trumpet players, like this person, do we commonly see who happen to be gir......I mean, females, women and ladies? That in NO WAY implies that a "girl" cannot play on the same level as a "boy", as this video demonstrates. But for whatever reason, we just do not commonly see as many ladies in the trumpet section as we do boys....er, guys.....er, men.....? I just did not take the o.p.'s comments as disrespectful.

    I too have trouble with "girl". It has NOTHING to do with political correctness. Why not just : here is a great young trumpet player. Woman hold their own in this business as anyone that knows Susan Slaughter or Carole Dawn Reinhart proved quite a while back. What is special, are the personalities not the gender.

    I just realized that when we (the males) are sitting behind our computers,
    discussing really important matters,
    they (the females) probably are practicing their heads off! :oops:
