Flute and trumpet?
Hello, all. I know this is a weird kind of post, but I’m hoping someone can help me. You see, many moons ago, I used to play the trumpet and was quite good at it. For reasons too complicated to go into, I had to quit and was without music up until 3 years ago when I started learning ITM on the whistle. Well, now I have a bit of a hankerin’ to learn jazz trumpet again, but I don’t want it to ruin my flute embouchure. I suspect that playing the trumpet will do just that, but a friend of mine said that he knew a guy who was able to play both trumpet and saxophone (which would pose a similar problem, I would think). So, does anybody know of anybody who can play both the trumpet and the flute and do both pretty well? I really don’t want to have to learn jazz on the flute, because, well—I just don’t. Please let me know if you have any thoughts.
