I played it at Wynton’s home and it’s a wondeful instrument.
But it ‘s very hard to play ! :) It’s heavy, very heavy :)

I’m not a regular poster here, but I was wondering what it is that you mean by the ‘correct way’. I ask this because I’ve recently began the long journey of playing one of the greatest instruments of the world (needless to say that this is the trumpet!). And although I follow lessons, I worry sometimes that I play it the wrong way. That’s why I want to know what the correct way is…

No problem Martin.
I said: “the correct way” because, for a long time, i had a lot of trouble with a lot of “professors”, that didn’t give me good lessons about PLAYING the trumpet.

That’s all

Did Wynton give you a lesson?  If so what did he teach you?

No Wynton never gave me “technical” lessons. I sometimes, duet whit him while we are in his hotel room (when he is touring).
He only explained me the feeling of jazz, and how to start playing it.

Hey Luigi, thanks for the reaction.
I’m still wondering tough how it is possible that a lot of “professors” can’t give any good lessons about playing the trumpet. Cos I’m very happy about my current teacher, but how do I know he is a GOOD teacher who teaches me the trumpet correctly and not just a nice guy.
Not that I question his expertise on the trumpet (because he’s real good!), but he is my first teacher..

No Martin, i only had bad experiences…
