Ok i think i am getting better as most of the time when they are home the kids do not either run away outside or close as many doors as they can between me and them. ( or maybe i am getting quiter) Am now frustrated that to read sheet music the trumpet is just the wrong length for me to see the sheet with it at my mouth. very frustrating!!! have tried it at the side but that didnt work also tried with and without glasses still no good. any suggestions? This may sound silly to some of you but i have never played before and am a 52 year old begginer so be gentle with me.
