Just found out that the latest episode of Trumpet Dynamics is the most popular one so far with 392 downloads and counting.

If you haven't checked it out yet, listen to it here. It has already sparked a lot of healthy discussion about the value of a music education and what people are really looking for when they hire trumpet players.

But there are a lot of other great episodes that you may have missed.
