    Hi;

    I live in an area that doesn't have anyone that does trumpet lessons('xcept for school) and I'm thinking about getting lessons. Any thoughts or ideas? I'm not a beginner, but could always benefit from professional help.

    How often are you looking for and what do you want to achieve from these lessons?

    I was going to offer to help get you started. But Trent is a better musician and I have never heard anything bad about him. I would look into him if you really want some lessons.

    Adam Rapa does lessons on Skype. He calls it iBrass. I don't know what your budget is...but he's kind of expensive...$75/lesson. But hey, he's a beast of a player!

    iBrass

    Hope this helps,

    Here's the thing;
    I'm 56, played the trumpet thru high school, then put it away, except for a couple times, in the many years between. Picked it up again a couple years ago to play in my church. I realize I don't have any endurance or range. I never got into practice( I know it's bad) but I want to increase both endurance and range, high c tops.
    Thanks
