Roddy Lewis

I received this email from Roddy and I had to include him.

Hi ya from Wales UK!
How are you?
Would you consider adding a trumpet sound clip from me to your pupils page? I know we've never met but it was only after reading/playing your books did I get the range thing!
I assure you that it was only your book (and Mr. Jacoby's) which gave me the help I needed.
If another teacher put up a page with clips on I would not consider sending a clip.
I would be honoured if you would consider me a pupil (albeit a remote one!) : )
Yours Roddy o-iii
