Hey guys, so I was thinking tonight of what I can do to contribute more to the trumpet community. I currently don't teach lessons, seeing as how I am busy enough working part-time and being a music major, but I wanted to at least put my skills to the test. Here is what I was thinking:
1. Lots of you on this site are comeback players. In fact, I'm willing to bet that at least 50% of you are.
2. I'm a comeback player myself having taken 2 years completely off the horn.
3. Although there are resources for comeback players, I haven't found any YouTube "tutorials." These always help me when I want to learn something.
4. I'm not interested in making a profit but just benefiting society at large.
So, having said that, my idea is to create a series of videos on YouTube specifically aimed at helping people come back to the trumpet. My teacher, David Brown, is considered one of the world's experts on comeback playing, and we can go over the reasons for that later, but I can of course consult him for some golden advice. Having journeyed down the sometimes rocky road of "comeback playing," I can empathize with those who may feel like they just don't "have it" anymore.
I'd also post some important exercises (without infringing on any copyrights).
Also, I know that private teachers are the most important thing, and I'm not trying to replace them. More or less just want to provide any additional help needed, based on my experience.
So, is there any interest in this at all, or should I take a hike?
