    I went to my brothers house for Thanksgiving near Boston so, on Friday I decided to do my own thing.
    I first went to Charlie Schlueter's house for a lesson. I always go with a list of questions a mile long.
    He took some time with me and answered them all.

    Here is a tip for free that I paid for. "Most problems can be linked back to air"

    After the lesson I went to Trent Austin's house to try trumpets.
    I knew I was keeping Trent, and my wife was waiting at the Mall but I couldn't stop.

    I played his trumpets and then mine and had him play mine and listened and had him play his.
    It is nice to have another player at the dealer. He can listen and so can you.

    As soon as I finished with Trent I called my wife and told her that I was on my way.
    I know it's dangerous to leave her and my daughter in the mall too long.

    It was a pleasure to hear you play up here in Salem. You have some absolutely amazing instruments (and sound great on them) and I was so happy to hear them in my little studio. I just hope I didn't cause permanent hearing loss when I was "letting it rip". That room gets pretty loud quickly!

    Take care and hope your wife didn't cause too much damage ;) on the credit cards!

    Best,

    T

    One of the things Charlie would always stress was tapping your left foot. Lessons were a steady stream of use more air, tap your left foot and think of the end of the note. Maybe he's gotten away from the tapping...

    I didn't know you were a student of Charlie.
    He has students that are making a living playing so his teachings must do something. I know he has helped me!

    Next time I'm in Minneapolis I'll come by your place and you can teach me how to beat my right foot.

    How much did these 8 words cost you?:-)

    As I was reading your story, I was almost expecting to read that you had better leave (go pick up your wife) before you yourself broke the bank account with buying another horn.:D

    It took him about a minute to tell me so I would say aprox. $1.33 Give or take. The question is: what are those words worth?

    Hummm Charlie Schluter said them to you in person at a lesson...

    Can you say PRICELESS! That's what I'm thinking.
