I am in a civic club with a young woman who put her self through college on a trumpet scholarship. Follow your heart and enjoy playing the trumpet! Anyone who would make such a comment is simple and ignorant.

I was playing once and afterwards, a little boy approached me and stated that he played the trumpet. I asked, "Do you play like I do?" and he replied, "I used to."
I actually think the title to this thread should be really REALLY really bad pick up lines

Truly, a trumpet or other musical instrument didn't work for me ... not that I tried to use such.

I'm not responsible for offending people -- people are responsible for themselves taking offense at me
I'd been frequently on the phone with this Southern girl for a month and finally asked her if she'd like to have coffee with me after work. She said, yes then, and a year later said yes again at our wedding. That was in 1967. We're still married! Too, I still like coffee.

I've been playing long enough to remember racism and sexism on the bandstand. No room for either one. As far as family goes, I am constantly amazed at how insensitive family members can be. Ignore them, follow your own road.
French Besson trumpet
Piece of crap alto horn
When I first came to this Southern town some 40+ years ago, the race issue was blatantly open right down to the rest rooms and schools. While laws have changed facilities, they haven't much changed the mindset of many people.
