Thanks for clearing that up Phil. I see where you guys are getting this now.
Let it be known that I do not believe that because of my one student, anybody can be a great trumpet player. When I used that example I did not mean for it to come across like that. I was simply using an example. However I see that the way I worded it is confusing. I apologize.
Regardless of the confusing wording and example, I still believe than anybody can work their way up to a professional (great) level and beyond if they really, truly put the work into it.
