    How many have experienced or are experiencing a hiatus with trumpet lessons and what was the longest and/or shortest hiatus you had?

    I need a zillion lessons ... to play a violin like Itzaac Perlman. The crux is I ain't got that much time in my life left for that many lessons, and if he were my tutor, not only could I not afford them, I don't think he has that much time left in life either. So ... all I do is look now and then at Grandad's "fiddles and burnish them with a violin cream and and rosin the bows.

    I quit playing in 1992, last lesson back then was October `92.
    Started playing again April 2011... just practicing at home.
    Joined community bands June 2011.
    Started lessons with local pro player last week after 20 months on my comeback.
    Every 2 weeks. (only had one so far!)

    Last lesson was 1985-ish.

    I still use the music skills he taught me, especially how to prepare to sightread a piece.
