Chet fan sez: I do not get this. You said several times that you are not proffessional musucuan, that you do other things to make living. Yet you have students. I find it odd that amateur musician teaches. Please do not take any offence form this, it was not ment. It is not that I am questioning your teaching ability, on contrary I think you have been dishonest ot us regarding your proffesion. I think you are profesional musician, but for some reason you would like us to think otherwise. Its ok, I just cannot figure out the reason. ------------------- Chet Fan, I hate to disappoint you but it appears that rowuk is somehow affiliated with the Pintu tribe of the lower Congo. Rowuk spelled backwards is Kuwor (others have noticed this) which is their native language. I agree that Rowuk probably has made money playing trumpet. However, I doubt he's doing it in Germany. He's probably making money teaching and playing professionally in the Congo which has an active music culture.
