    Most of the essential technique books or other beginner method books now come with a CD. I suggest one of these because it shows the fingerings as well as gives you a chance to listen to notes/ rhythms, etc. Lessons are good for preventing bad habits from starting.

    If you're motivated Chances = 100%

    With what I have already read, the advice in the above posts will keep you motivated to making my chances estimate accurate.

    Not sure if it already mentioned .............why don't both of you join a local Brass Band and enjoy the experiences together
    There might even be a beginner band that is a intro to the main

    don't forget "below the staff" either --- lots of community band stuff that goes to the A, and sometimes the G below the staff..


    """Here in Lebanon MO I think all we have is a jug band.""""" -------perhaps you could start a band!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not sure how good the one brass teacher may be. He may be very good, but if not you could consider Skype lessons.

    I think that he is good for now. I'm sure my son will outgrow him in a year or two. He is a brass guy with 30 years experience as a high school band leader and has taken many state honors and has had many private students go on to professional careers (jazz and symphonic), but his first instrument is trombone. When it's time we'll go down the road an hour where there are two colleges that offer private lessons.
