We have some very lovely young ladies who've chosen that path - many are driven by demons other than the trumpet, and some move on over time. Patience is the catch-cry - but is she a trumpeter who needs rescuing? Is her talent inescapable? To take you to the Boss suggests she has some passion. Can you take a chance with her - sit her down, explain that you are challenged by her fashion sense and the possibility that she has damaged herself with respect to her embouchure - can you ask her to show you that you are wrong. Can you accept that you might be wrong. Teach man, teach, this is your mission - should you choose to accept it.

She don't need your help. She can flunk out quite well on her own.
