    My 6-year old son has developed an interest in trumpet. I gave him my old Yamaha, and he practices every day, and has a range up to 2nd line g or 2nd space a.

    He said to me today "When I grow up, I'm going to play 1st trumpet and get paid like that guy you showed me." (I went to the Monette site and showed him the clip of Manny playing Alpine and Mahler 8).

    Yup... Daddy's proud.

    Yeah! I've got a son who's almost 8----and probably ready to begin studying seriously. He's been after my horn since he was about 4! I started my oldest daughter (who's now 17) at age 9 and she will be playing with me in the community band this fall. Isn't it fun to teach these kids the joys of trumpet playing?! :D

    :-) I'd rather quote myself than say it again :-)
