    Actually my lessons were with NYC based player Larry Gillespie. Excellent player, teacher and "good guy". Would type more, but my mother in law is hawking around the apartment.LOL

    Wow, great stuff! I'm glad you brought it back...and since you did, I have a question. Did Roger ever discuss his practice routine? Does he play out of a book or specific exercises?

    I, too, had a great lesson from Roger earlier this year. And this week I discovered that he's got some videos on Online Video Music Lessons by Star Studio Instructors - Trumpet, Trombone, Drums, Sax, Bass, Guitar, Piano that beautifully illustrate his approach to mouthpiece placement. He uses a visualizer to demo how he places his lips outside the cup on a small piece and inside the cup on what, for him, is a larger piece.

    The videos will cost you about $5 to download but, in my opinion, are well worth the price. He also has a couple in which he demos his breathing technique.

    I believe Bobby Shew and some other trumpet headliners also have instructional videos on the same site.

    How much does a lesson GENERALLY cost with these super stars?

    Here's a better question: What's it worth to you?

    I would rather not say how much the lesson was. I'll put it this way, it was worth every dollar!:D :D :D :D :D

    I had a lesson with him several months back. I attribute my last 2 whole steps (I actually hit a G and held it today--softly!!!) to following his exercises and methodology, along with Bob Odneal.

    On an hourly basis, never having a private lesson before, I think it is a bargain. You can videotape the whole lesson, and then watch and learn as much as you want to over and over.
