    My wife must be tone deaf - she says "That sounds nice" when I practice at home...

    To all with their kind wishes, thanks so much. Yes these are hard times, but necessary and I believe the best for both sides. You people here are my family. You kind wishes just demonstrates that. Thanks so much, you ALL have no idea what this means for me. And thanks to the OP starting this thread. This may be part of the healing process for me. Again, many thanks!!:grouphug:

    Three kids, two of them twins. All of them hated the trumpet until I got better. There was a time I had to leave the house on weekends find some place to practice when everyone was at home, just for an hour or two, and only if I completed the "honey do" list. Those days are done. Everyone is older now and more tolerant. The general house rules are, practice during the day without a mute is OK. At night, when people want peace and quiet, I use the Silent Brass System. I am really happy with that. I use the night time for scale patterns anyways.

    When I first started to learn I had to practice in the car, in the garage, at the bottom of the garden.

    My parents were fairly tolerant about a beginner practicing. My wife......well, she's a flute/picc player and doesn't have to worry about building an emboucher and keeping it. So, she just doesn't understand about the need to keep playing to keep the chops in fine fettle:oops:
