    Actually, and I know you were somewhat kidding, but of all the forums I've been on since 2000, this forum is the most abusive of that "on topic" policy. Never seen anything like it.

    Still, thanks for your experience. It seems that a lot of the pros and cons about the school depend on what you wanted going in and coming out. Now, I'll go read other more useful threads, like whether an Olds trumpet that's seventy years old really does still have good valves.

    (I know that -my- 70 year old mechanics don't work like they once did.)

    Re: Who did you stydy with?

    I've always treated threads like conversations, and most conversations deviate away from the main topic now and again. Are you saying that this forum is bad about straying off topic, or that people complain when it does stray off topic?

    Getting back to the subject, I once took a lesson with Jack Wengrowsk, retired lead player of the US Army Jazz Ambassadors. At the time I was having some issues with endurance getting to the end of the gig. The lesson lasted about an hour and it was mostly focused on conceptual things - sort of how I approached my playing with some of the music I'd brought with me. Not so much a "chop doc" thing as just looking for ways to play smarter, not harder. The idea was that I'd call him back and readdress some things if I continued to have problems, but the difference that one lesson made was night and day, and it was the only lesson I took with him.
