Hi all My 4 year old is showing a heavy interest in playing a brass instrument. He can (and has been able to for 18 months) get a note out of my bass and he wants to play a cornet so he can join our band. Now, I am well aware that at 4 years old little uns tend to flit and flat between ideas. However, he has been pretty steady on this for a while and I have thought "why not" and am organising him a spare cornet from our band. Whilst I am more than happy for him to blow the thing and get used to having fun with the instrument (after all, this is why we do it anyway!) but if he gets rather good at blowing the thing, I would love to help him along. I am not going to push him in anyway but if he shows an interest and has fun, how do I guide him? Any good ideas for helping him to learn? Remember I play Eb Bass and can only get a note of a cornet if I blow down t'other end! All help appreciated. Possibly not by my neighbours though!
