As Father's Day is approaching, I'm reminded of how important male role models can be in our world. Not just in the formative early years, but throughout life, fathers have countless opportunities to offer guidance, support, love, and encouragement. This is a sincere thank you, and pat on the back to all of you fathers who have given again and again. Thanks to you, our world is a much better place.
I'm not a father, but I have wanted to have children for many years. In many ways, it is probably good that I don't have children simply because I would have invested so much time and energy into cultivating their minds, being there when they need me, and hopefully creating amazing memories. I'm certain that most of my innovations would have either come later in life, or not at all, had I been raising kids for the past decades. Despite my reality, I do believe I would love being a Dad.
To say thank you to all of the fathers in the world (at least the trumpet playing fathers), I'm offering a free private lesson to every father who purchases a trumpet in June. You can either come to Denver, and I'll pay your travel expenses (up to 10% of the purchase price), or we can meet on Zoom for your lesson. I don't normally offer many trumpet lessons as my schedule is typically filled with R&D, designing, machining, working with clients, etc. But I'm making an exception this month to give you the opportunity to experience a breakthrough in your playing.
Remember, this Saturday is our open house where you can get a shop tour, play test trumpets, and attend my masterclass "Physics-based Trumpet Design". You can register here, or make plans to visit during our July open house (Friday the 14th). If you find yourself in the Denver area this Summer, be sure to call ahead for a tour and/or private play testing session.
Happy early Father's Day,
