Heres one from the UK Jack
Another from the UK would be Noel Langley (LonelyAngel).
Doug Cooper- I have no idea where my old teacher has gone, but if you get a chance to work with him, you'll see why I like him and why he made me so much better.
Paul Compton- Last I heard, Paul was directing a jazz band at Oklahoma State University at Stillwater, OK. He used to be the lead trombone for the One O'Clock lab band, and despite being a trombonist, he still has massive knowledge on the jazz style and on brass techniques.
It is helpful if a great teacher has the mental aspect truly down.
Herseth, Scarlett, the late Arnold Jacobs, are some examples.
Not to bring up an old worn out topic, but I remembered a guy I played with who was from UNT, and had even been on 20/20 on something about how the ear listens to music (or something like that). Anyway, his name was Chris Chevsky (I think that's how you spell it). That guy not only could play the trumpet with amazing ability, but he just understood the mechanics of music. Talking with him for 5 minutes and I knew about 10 things that I hadn't before. If you get the chance just to talk with him, you will know what I mean.

Scott Holbert (Reinhardt teacher)
Doug Eliot (trombone player, but I hear he's great with trumpet players for chops stuff)
Many, MANY others too, thanks to the 5 premier military bands, plus the National and Baltimore symphonies.
So how do you know Les Stallings?
He doesnt live very far from me. I didnt know he gave lessons.

I play at a reasonable level (more out of my bands desperation rather than my overall ability) but have some nasty habits (anybody else have the "bullshit fingering syndrome"). The last lesson I had was in 1978 and I have stumbled along ever since. I know my limitations, I aint the best (although I have been commended on my tone and range), I have a tendency to rush and my self confidence is easily undermined. I have recently contemplated having lessons in a bid to overcome some of the afforementiond habits. Could lessons help (d'ya think) or is it a case of old dogs new tricks? Whos Manchester way that could be recommended?
You can not go wrong studying with the Wise one. Still trying to do the things he taught ne
