This is my 21st trumpet lesson with professor Aldridge. Something went wrong with my phone camera and it wouldn’t focus on anything farther than 5 inches, so I took pictures of every single little “unit” – it was revolutionary!! Every frame is so clear!!
Anyway, this had been a fun lesson. I saw professor Aldridge’s notebook that talks about his students’ weaknesses, and I freaked out, but to be honest I was relieved that it didn’t say “Alice, weakness: everything”. He gave me three new horribly hard pieces that sounded so weird that I refused to play them, and played them anyway. He also helped me pull out my stuck mouthpiece, which was so sweet but also kind of embarrassing for me because being a 20 year old young powerful woman I let him beat me at strength… I should really start working out.
