My Musical Journey #2

Posted on 09 April 2010 by Robert

It has been a week since my first MMJ post and I’ve learned a bit more of “The Black Pearl” from Pirates Of The Caribbean. It might not seem like much but it was difficult for me. I didn’t think I’d be able to learn as much as I have so far, but I did it!

I know that I need to be patient with developing better tone, but I wish I could send better already! I know that I need to work on remembering fingerings for all of the notes. I’ve noticed that when I go in for a lesson, I always seem to forget them. Well, here’s the video for this update, for your enjoyment.

Please comment and let me know what you think!

    Hi, Robert!

    This is the first video of yours that I’ve seen and as a non-musician (me, not you), I think that you’re doing well!!

    I am going to enjoy watching your progress and I think that it’s very cool that you want to share this with us. Thank you.

    Having taken a “brass methods” class in school to be able to teach beginners, I know just how tough it is to get anything out of a trumpet! The teacher had to give me a bass trumpet to learn the fingerings because I couldn’t get up enough buzz for the norm mouthpiece!

    Elli,
    It is tough to get that buzz going! I struggle with it every day, and before I practice I have to go through a long tune-up session in order to make sure I’m playing the correct notes. Are you a music teacher?
