    I'm young and I've had little chance to meet some of the guys that we all try to emulate. I don't care who its from, a pro, teacher, or just a guy you knew who could bust really high notes. Post some of the best advice you've gotten.

    Basics will save your bacon. (long tones, lip slurs, tounging, etc.)

    playing a trumpet is a physical activity - eat right, exercise and get plenty
    of rest. Dave
