Hey everybody! I've got a couple questions I would like to ask. I'm 16 and new to trumpet and I've heard that there are many bad habits that can arise if you aren't taught properly straight off, so I was thinking, what are some of the common pitfalls that I must be aware of in order to advance? I don't want to get any bad habits. I am really interested to learn this instrument and join in with many bands, and have dreams of one day joining an orchestra, but what is the reality of that happening because I have only just started? Have I started too late? And would a new trumpet allow me to advance faster?
