Quit right after my dad purchased the instrument
Funny that you mention it.

It’s this kind of thing that keeps music shops in business.

If you still have the instrument (because I know you never get rid of anything!), I can offer Revision Lesson 1:

a) read short book/article on how to handle and finger it

b) blow across mouthpiece in the prescribed way

c) make magic

That should be all you need. Terrible is a relative term.

Like what you read? Give Stuart James a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
