Hey so i was just curious about this thought, and seeing that there seems to be a lot of instructor/teacher/coaches on here i wanted to ask ... Do any teachers have an expected timeline on ones learning?
Say a student starts from scratch, could he walk into a teachers studio and the teacher after evaluating him/her be able to determine roughly how far the student should, and how quickly the student should be progressing? I guess its all relavent, on the myriad of factors involved in trumpet playing.
Would an instructor advise giving up if the student after 2 years still couldnt play a decent second line g, advising maybe he should play piano.
Would a teacher after evaluating be anticipating a student to be able to play a range from low f to g on top in a year. or is there some rough time frame used by teachers like a yard stick kinda thing?
Do teachers apply such things to their students?
