    Hey, Art!

    No one is too old for a teacher, nor is one ever too old to learn (unless one is pushing up daisies!).

    What you need (IMHO) is to join a community band and play with a section. Then you'll have constant practice in playing in tune with those around you. You will also have the experience and knowledge of your section from which you can learn alot!!!

    Try it! you'll thank me!!

    Geesh... maybe i am not speaking clearly.. " I occasionally take lessons as needed" "in addition to my rehearsals" implies i am out playing somewhere assumably with a group or section.... I was just trying to help someone who posted with a problem ... chuckle

    Re: Accuracy??

    One other comment regarding the teacher issue. When I practice, I am applying some of what I learned in the past and applying it to the immediate. The teacher, or coach is perhaps a better word, is to help me remember what I have not brought to my consciousness and then apply it to that day's practice. A supplemental set of ears and brains.

    In my opinion, the word practice here is a description of the discipline that we apply to ourselves. Part of that discipline is listening to what others hear, and then using it or rejecting it as the situation unfolds.
