    DO'H! I didnt realise there was a second page :(.

    It must have looked like I was keeping you in anticipation. Im from York England. My trumpet teacher was a Mr Warley. (Really nice guy, feel as though I let him down somehow)

    I have had huge confidence issues, I went to play with York Jazz band at Milthorpe a couple of times but was just too shy :(

    I love the idea of jamming, but I think I have have overstated my abilities hehehe. I could competently tap the beat but couldnt competently play with a good person (and trumpet player!)

    Okay so I'm from Holme on Spalding Moor (was that Derek Warley, conducted the Golden Rail and RI for a bit I know of him) We are 20 miles apart. PM me and we might be able to get together although I will warn you I'm more cornet than trumpet and can be a bit classically minded.

    Cheers

    PM on its way :)

    Mr Worley was kind enough when my parents stopped lessons to provide me with a new trumpet. (Ultra Sonic - never found much information on it except (http://www.trumpetmaster.com/vb/f139/olds-superstar-ultrasonic-60188.html) think my parents paid a nominal sum for it. Unfortunately I had a house fire a few years ago and it was under my bed and got destroyed (whood'a thought) Took me a year or so after that to get a very cheap one which I still use today, although intend to save up and get a new one.

    I have had a stab at classical music and play a couple of the Arban Cornet Method pieces(I've had this book since i was 15 and never realised it said Cornet Method until I looked just now) although not the variations. (Speed is just too much for me)

    Thanks for your posts everyone, cheered me up. :)
