I've arranged for my first private trumpet lesson next week. So far, I've got my trumpet (well, cornet actually), bought a straight mute (Dennis Wick), found an old music stand lying around my parents-in-law house, and bought a Arban's book. I've been able to learn most fingering, and play from A below staff up to F or G. I am trying to play-along with some CDs i have, but boy, Wynton Marsalis and Miles Davis like to play FAST!!!!! Also, Carnival of Venice is pretty impossible for me... Is there anything I should do in particular to prepare for my lesson? Any advice, thanks!
