    Thank you for the question.

    I teach Music (capitalization intended) through trumpet playing. This includes all elements associated with the melody instrument that is the trumpet. For instance, at one lesson this week I was showing a student the effect of there being an anacrusis to a melody - what difference there was between melodies with and without these anacruses. Most all my teaching is done with real music examples. I also encourage students to write/play their own melodies, particularly as settings to (mainly 19th century) poetry, and also to assign words to melodic fragments which give them trouble. I am aware of many shortcomings of musical notation, and show students how, by overcoming these shortcomings, their Music improves.

    Any more info needed - read my blogs!

    That's what we have conductors for. ;-)
    I did read through your credentials, which led to the question. And so I will be reading your blogs. I will try and get in touch if I have something I'd like to discuss.
