I am kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place with private lessons. My last teacher was a respected trumpet player locally and nationally, but I didnt really seem to fit with him. It was my mistake not to tell him I wasn't going to do lessons with him anymore, and that is over. Now I am trying to find another teacher in the area. I guess the norm is that a teacher asks you to prepare something for him/her so they can see where you are at. I get really nervous here because I dont want them to think that I am wasting there time. I have a real desire to get better , but I have reached a plateau in my playing abilities. I know it isn't easy, but I would like to do my part and more for my Latin band.
Any help and guidance is greatly appreciated
