We continue our discussion about teaching with John talking about the importance of sound and concept along with the importance of singing. I then ask John about the question, should the school be there for the student, or should the student be there for the school (spoiler alert: John sees this as a black and white question!).  We talk about why so few great trumpet players are great musicians, and what the quality is that makes a great trumpet player a great musician.
