    Is it best to have just one teacher, or would having lessons from two teachers be beneficial (different teaching styles, point of view, philosophy, etc)?

    Thanks.

    It depends on you. If you have some common sense, occasional impulses from the outside keep things interesting.

    That's exactly why I was thinking. But I was worried that it might be a big distractor. Thanks

    Studying with multiple teachers at the same time can be confusing for two people will look at situations differently and for the student, it could become confusing. It would be better to study with different teachers but at different times.

    My point is that you have a main teacher for the mechanics of playing trumpet. Other teachers offer musical impulses, tips on body use - COMPLEMENTARY stuff.

    I have always jumped at every opportunity to work with other players. Generally this means I play some piece and they comment on what they see and hear. I have NEVER gone to another teacher just to learn to play high notes or tongue.
