genuine insight is a powerful reward for hard work.</p> <p>Seven months on and my trumpet playing is easier, my whole range is higher and stronger, my flexibility is honest, my whole technique is more secure but most of all my confidence is through the roof.  The seven elements that form the basis of Claude Gordon's approach are interrelated so a weakness in one area is due to an imbalance in the other six.  Human beings are great at compensating and once the seven elements are unequal it is easy to convince ourselves there is only one weakness.  With Claude's approach, everything is addressed everyday so everything has the opportunity to strengthen and improve.</p> <p>Ultimately I have made a success of this way of studying because I followed the instructions I was given; the man with the plan is Jeff Purtle and worth every cent.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/medium/public/2017-02/david-bertie.jpg?itok=32HOPnUC" width="175" height="220" alt="David Bertie - trumpet" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-medium" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-name field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">David Bertie</div> <div class="field field--name-field-location field--type-geolocation field--label-hidden field__item"><div id="map-canvas-5b197e8a74be7" class="geolocation-formatter-map-wrapper" > <div class="geolocation-google-map"></div> <div class="geolocation-common-map-locations"> <div class="geolocation" data-lat="51.052671585989" data-lng="-2.4196243303595" > <h2 class="location-title">51.052671585989, -2.4196243303595</h2> <div class="location-content"></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-bio field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Freelance Trumpeter<br /> Brass Teacher<br /> Wincanton, Somerset<br /> United Kingdom</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/testimonial/jeff" hreflang="en">Jeff</a></div> </div> Tue, 07 Feb 2017 17:09:04 +0000 Jeff Purtle 258 at https://www.purtle.com Lee Loughnane Testimonial about Hit it Hard & Wish it Well by Jeff Purtle https://www.purtle.com/lee-loughnane-testimonial <span property="schema:name" class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Lee Loughnane Testimonial about Hit it Hard &amp;
