Just a quick note to say I visited your web-site this week and really enjoyed the various articles, particularly your insight into the teachings of Claude 
Gordon. I'm coming back to trumpet after a 15 year break and have taken up Claude's "Systematic Approach To Daily Practice" as the central area of focus. As a result, I'm always on the look-out for information from people that studied under Claude to provide further insight beyond the information printed in his books. The info you presented was very thorough and well written.
Best of Luck.
