    Hello, Legallee - Welcome to Trumpetmaster.
    Congratulations on starting the cornet. I have a Holton Collegiate and they are very nice horns for learning to play. I'm happy to hear that you have found a good teacher. That is a major key to learning the right techniques and habits.

    I have not heard of Sam Hand but then I am in California so he's not exactly a local fixture here. But, if he's good for you, that is really all you need to know.

    Keep us posted on how you're getting on.
