A very interesting point and observation Rowuk!
Blow your life through your horn
As for wide versus deep:the zen guys say you can get further by digging one hole a hundred feet deep than by digging ten different ten-foot holes.
Madness is rare in individuals - but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule.
Listen to this sample: Michael Haydn Concerto for Trumpet - II (Allegro) -
Only one private lesson in my life--with Roger Ingram.
Is that a pedigree???
1927 Conn 22B New York Symphony
"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort."
I wouldn't consider having one lesson with someone as having "studied" with them. To me, studying with someone involves at least TWO lessons. One where you get coaching and then you spend some time on it by yourself and bring it back to the person. Three days is enough to say you studied with someone (I would say).
Practice is like filling a leaky bucket

I've had lessons with many people but studied with 4. "Studied" to me means I saw them on a regular basis over an extended period of time. I've made appearances with many fine professional bands, but I've only "played" with two (1 for 8 years and the other for about 20). I have served as the guest conductor of at least 100 bands over the past 30-years, but only been the director of 3 of them.
I love the thought behind this thread because it is about honesty!
