Hello and Thanks From A New Member and Come-Back Player
I've been reading in these forums for some time now and they're great! Thanks from this come-back player for tips, suggestions, motivation, inspiration, etc., from everyone from the "Masters", to all the other members, to the young/new players and to the other come-backers like me.
The amount of information here is astounding and I'll be hanging around for a long time.
I started playing after 30 years away last spring. Unfortunately, my old high school trumpet's valves are shot and it just didn't make relearning very easy. Last August my wife bought me a Bach 180S37 for our 30th and I've been hard at it since.
I started taking lessons in late October and my instructor has been great! He's got me moving the air, working with a metronome, moving the air, sounding beautiful, moving the air, relearning to move my fingers on the right valves at the right time, moving the air... and did I mention moving the air? He's been a great help.
So thanks again for all I've received from TrumpetMaster so far and I look forward to receiving more and contributing, too.
I am from Seattle... who are you studying with?
trumpet: Flip Oaked Wind Thing in gold plate, #1 Tuning Slide
piece: Monette PRANA BL3
Flugel: Yamaha 631, Rose brass bell (I really want a Flip Oakes Flugel... putting together the cash)
Out of respect for his privacy I'm waiting to hear from my teacher before I release his name.
In answer to Joshua Sullins, my instructor is Mr. John Wells of Tacoma, WA.
John is a great help. He identified some foundational problems right away and has been working me through them. He's got a great teaching style that's very motivating. He's got me breathing much better and moving the air for what, I have no doubt, will become a great sound.
I highly recommend him.
