Today was my second trumpet lesson. I was apprehensive because I hadn’t practiced as much as I should since my first lesson due to the fact that I caught a cold, but I actually had quite a bit of fun. I think that I was right in picking up this instrument and deciding that I actually want to learn it. My teacher and I worked on “The Black Pearl” from Pirates Of The Caribbean. I only know the first 10 measures of it so far, but once I learn it I’d like to post a youtube video of myself playing it.
I’m going along with MaryamLovesJazz (follow her) over at the Twitter Jazz Network and her Jazz Appreciation Month Challenge. The JAM challenge is that you pick up whatever instrument you’ve always wanted to learn and just do it. You will not fail if you put enough effort into it.

I’m going to begin posting weekly video updates on my quest for learning to play the trumpet as a way of keeping myself in check. Your job as the reader is to comment on the updates and let me know how I’m doing. I want you to be brutally honest. If I’m doing something wrong, please let me know!

I leave you with this video, which is one that inspires me to learn trumpet:

    I haven’t been to Maryam’s site, but I’ll check it out.

    I have tenor sax sitting not five feet way from me right now. Never learned it like I want to, and it’s been in another state for a couple years now.

    But I got it BACK! And if you can learn the trumpet from scratch, dude, I can pick up this tenor again.

    Her site is great! You should start playing that sax. I tried learning sax before and I just ever caught on for whatever reason. You can definitely do it, and what better time than Jazz Appreciation Month?
