...hey -- he approaches trumpet playing the same way my 3-year-old does. Maybe he's just 'humming' the notes through the horn liky my toddler does!
There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary and those who do not.
Never know, he could be a legit player, but with one heck of a sense of humour. For all we know he could post on this site.
