Hey all! I want to know how many here are attempting or have attempted, although I know it's not wise, self teaching trumpet? I ask because I have yet to find a trumpet teacher in my city and part of me has moments where frustration comes immediately when I pick up my horn, put it to my lips and attempt to blow and the best way I can describe my sound is like a bad speedboat motor. My sources of frustration are embouchure and attack (sounding "tu" as I am new to that by way of Clarke Elementary Studies). Part of me doesn't want to put down my trumpet until I find a teacher as finding one takes a lot of time only to pick it up when I finally find one and still be frustrated, and I'm not the "overnight success" type when it comes to learning music.
