    22 years in life

    only 3 in trumpet

    but 8 in brass, 1 year on trumpet and 5 years on the french horn in middle and high school, took some time off from brass during college but never stopped playing music, been back on trumpet for 2 years now and I must say that being back on the trumpet has given me new direction in music

    18 musical years, started playing the piano when I was 4 (I didn't like it so much back then but now I thank my mom all the time for making me take suzuki method lessons) stopped taking lessons when I was 14 but I still learn a piece occasionally so as to keep my fingers limber, was in a church choir from ages 6-12, and at age 11 had my most memorable musical experience to date, singing soprano in a performance of Mozart's requiem (never will be able to do that again), hopefully a memorable trumpet performance is coming soon

    22/10, although my senior year in HS when I was getting ready for college auditions should probably count as 2 years, and this year, my senior year in college, should probably only count as half a year because I've spent too much time in the library and not in the practice room...

    47 in real life, 38 in trumpet years, almost 7 in dog years!

    Being a band director and freelance player I have not "put down my horn" during my entire adult life. Last year the few months following my heart attack were the longest months of my life in many ways, but not being able to play my trumpet made it really long. I currently have surgery scheduled to have my kidney out in May and I have been told 12-weeks minimum before I'll be allowed to play after that.
