He had his first lesson on Saturday. It was very helpful for my dh and I to learn a few things on how to help him, but probably not a good fit of a college student to work with a five year old. We will keep actively looking for a teacher that will be able to communicate well with him.
This is video we took tonight. The song is well into the book we are using, but it was the one he picked out and wanted (more like demanded) to play after listening to the CD that goes with the book. He has been practicing it for exactly one week.
I can't say enough how much I appreciated the information in my other thread. I have been so lost on where to begin and if we were making a big mistake by letting him get started.
If anyone has suggestions on classical trumpet music/musicians that I should let him listen to, I would appreciate the suggestions. I now have several jazz options we have purchased or have loaded on Pandora, but I want to improve the classical list. THanks!
