    "Adam's a great player! I wouldn't mind having a few lessons with him!"

    Did you know you can take a lesson from Adam? He does it on line. Got to his website and you can schedule a lesson with him using a web cam.


    He charges $75 per lesson. :play:

    I'll be impressed once I hear the back story for this kid. Is she a child of privilege and wealth basically forced into playing trumpet by her parents (ala Mozart)? Or did she take to it naturally and her parents merely encouraged her? Is that her Monette horn? Or is she just using Adam's?

    My point is, just about any kid is going to "be a prodigy" at something if they're forced into it and given every privilege. I'd rather hear about the kid who despite NO parental support, and NO special privilege's still kicks butt to become great.

    (And really neither scenario is necessarily a reflection on the kid herself...I'm sure she's a great kid who's trying to do good. That's not in question.)

    She studied with her dad for a while (I believe) and then he realized she needed a more advanced teacher.

    She doesn't play on a monette horn (I don't think), but she does play with a monette mouthpiece. That video was shot at the monette shop, so it might be one of the Demo horns, or Adam's.
