One student I did test, but I don’t remember her being so awful at it! And now that pressure is on she probably feels worse. Another student couldn’t play last year because his family couldn’t afford an instrument…until someone donated a trumpet for him. He was so excited….me not so much anymore! haha

I thought last night (as I was teaching one of my private trumpet students….) that maybe if I mentioned blowing softly? They are practically blowing their brains out and everytime I say fast air from the tummy the blow harder and harder.
