I got 31 kids to teach, only 2 of which play tuba, but 9 trumpet! the rest split up between t-bone and tenorhorn. so what do you do when teaching a trumnpet playing kid? do you play to them on your 5/4 rudy BBb? ´Course not. get out my trpt-mpc grab their horn and demonstrate what I want them to do. doesn´t allways sound nice, but I still sound better than those beginners. Plus: I can allways say, HEY MAN, YOU´RE THE EXPERT ON THIS INSTRUMENT, NOT ME , I´M A TUBA-PLAYER, YOU´RE THE TRUMPET ONE HERE!! Usually gets them smiling a bit awkwardly that the non-expert still plays miles better than they do...
