Yeah, I've been chewed out on TM before, by many guys here (I won't mention any names). But I've come to find out that they were right all along, just being blunt as I needed to see it. I was always the one who was wrong whenever I rejected their advice or made a big deal about them "being harsh and offending". Listen to them, mambo, they have a lot more experience on their plate, and always turn out to be right in their advice and always have a good reason behind how they are treating you. The whole reason behind starting a thread is to be open to comments, but all you seem to be doing is rejecting all this advice .
You should let that sink in.
I may not be experienced enough to say, but I agree with everyone who says you would be doing a lot of harm in teaching. There are so many fundamentals that only professionals have a good grasp on, that it would be bad to teach the wrong fundamentals, really bad. Teaching trumpet is a good goal, but you wouldn't be ready for quite some time. But what I do recommend is that you take private lessons.

Recently I read an old post of mine.
Reading it now, I thought it was a little harsh.
Sometimes it's easy to put down what pops into your mind without realizing how it may be taken.
This is all written, no body movement or inflection in the voice.
The idea of the forum is to exchange ideas and share and teach.
Lets just be nice and teach and learn and be civil.
In Robins defense:
He is a moderator and has volunteered to read almost everything on his forum. Sometimes he is overwhelmed with ideas from young kids that are off for the summer. The same subjects come up over and over again and he has to read them all. I can see how this can get to a person. We get kids that post as if they play in the Boston Symphony. I don't have to read it but, the moderator does. He does it for FREE.
kids who are reading, think of the moderator and take what ever advice you get and use it. If you think the guy is an ..... use what he says anyway. It's free advice!
Btw, i don't think rowuk is an ... at all, his advice has always helped me and my playing grow. i just thought this wasn't fair how he put it, in a kids eyes.

original post (Amateur considering teaching amateurs!).
The question wasn't "give me all the experience you've ever had so that I can share it with my students" - it was a lot duller and more practical:
I think that if you asked on a medical chat room about billing, we might trust you to fill out the paperwork. I know it's complicated, but it's not surgery.So, here's the question, how should I go about doing so?
My plan was to put up a poster in the music department at school, and wait for the calls to roll in, but what from there? How much should I charge? Who am I? etc....
I give up !!!
