|Shifted from Tenor Sax to Trumpet recently as the portability and muting (Yamaha Silent Brass) makes great sense on weekly business travel and am progressing fairly well. However, am at a point where YouTube is no longer always the answer.
I travel weekly through multiple time-zones, so this prevents a scheduled "every Tues at 6:00 PM" - type of lesson structure.
And, leaving the horn at home and buzzing a mouthpiece makes life hard: airport x-ray discovery of a mouthpiece at airports in Tokyo and the Czech Republic resulted in a full search of my bag and individual frisk! Go figure.
Searched for comments and reviews relating to online, live instructor-based training (i.e., Lessonface) and there are definitely recommendations for "whom", but not seeing any commentary on whether this is a good idea.
Experiences, thoughts, recommendations?
“When I pick up that horn, that’s all. The world’s behind me... I love them notes. That’s why I try to make them right.”
