It's Been a While

Those of you who have been coming here for a while no doubt noticed the lack of posting the last 2 months. I have been changing my approach and thought it best to not confuse anybody with concepts that I am still working out. I have been teaching with these concepts with a lot of success, so I will start writing about them soon. For an idea of what I am working on, you can read this post of mine from a few weeks ago at the Trumpet Herald. This intense, sound based approach has opened up a whole new world to me, and I will try to get back to more regular posting about it soon. All I'll say for now is to listen closer. There is a lot more going on in your sound than you have probably experienced, and you should be aware of all the details.


Great Student Horns For Sale

I have been collecting Olds Ambassador trumpets and cornets because they are by far the greatest student trumpets ever made. If you (or your parents) are throwing money away on a rental trumpet you will end up saving a lot of money and playing a much better trumpet if you get one of these from me. All are under $200, and I give them a thorough cleaning and make sure that the valves and slides are in good working order. I'll eventually get around to putting up a page with all of them, but for now just email me (jpellett251@hotmail.com) and I will let you know what I have available.
