7th Trumpet Student Wants to Learn Faster Than the Band

Posted by glennled on April 19, 2010

My 7th student of this school year is a fourth grader in an alternative elementary school in Seattle. The Band meets only one day a week, and the Band Director is already telling him to play ahead of the rest of the band in the school music workbook. There are no formal homework assignments, yet he sits down and practices every week just for the fun of it. He likes trumpet! We began his private lessons today. His tone is very solid, and his articulation is clean. These techniques seem to come naturally to him. What more could a trumpet instructor ask for?–a  motivated, talented student! It will be my pleasure to help him become his best. I’m a lucky man.
