Just thought I'd let the group know that I started taking lessons with Jazz trumpeter Eddie Allen and can highly recommend him. My playing has improved dramatically since taking lessons with him.

Playing: yes. Right here on the forum. I've posted a bunch of stuff both here and on the Trumpetmaster site.

Approach. Not sure how to answer that. We are using Arbans, practicing scales. Working with a metronome, getting rid of bad habits. He listens to what I'm doing and starts making corrections. Knows how to say things in a way that you get them and can implement. Very nice person as well which helps.

Well, imagine my surprise today when I went into Borders and saw a new book on jazz trumpet called Hotter Than That by Krin Gabbard. The author talks about the history of jazz trumpet and his experiences as a comeback player. I recognized a familiar name: Eddie Allen is his teacher and there is a lot of detail about taking lessons with Eddie and everything that Eddie taught him.

so if you want to know Eddie's method, that book is a good place to start.

John McNeil is also an excellent teacher. He pin pointed some issues in my playing within in minutes and gave me some really good excersizes to help re-develop. Excellent knowledge in the history and explains it musically very easy so you can pick stuff up and run with it.

I am presently reading this book. I don't know what to believe in it because I am finding historical inaccuracies and other opinions that I would be cautious about taking for gospel.

He claims that the trumpets of Moses to be about the same length as a modern Bb and that keys were put on trumpets in the 1760's along with other issues. He also writes about natural trumpets as if the standard length was about the same as a modern Bb.

One opinion of his that I find to be amateurish (there are others in the book) is that he poo-poos dialing in the mouthpiece because he is not a good enough player to tell the difference. I have 4th grade students who can tell the difference. Back to the practice room Mr. Gabbard.
