Question: Tips for starting trumpet!?
I have experience with music, ive been in percussion for about four years for school!.
Ive been wanting to try trumpet(Good to learn if I want to do anything involving music in college) , and i think im gonna finally try it!.
A family member is very experienced with playing trumpet, so I will pretty much just get lessons that way, at home!.

Any other tips I should know, though!?
I figure ill learn faster if I can teach myself, and be taught by my relative!.!.haha!.

Thanks in advance!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
