I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

comment Recommendation for (self-taught) beginner trumpet resources?
Welcome to Music SE! Here, requesting a list of resources is off-topic, per the FAQ. As to your first question, it is feasible. I myself am a self-taught cornetist (very similar to trumpet). In fact I've only had one year of instruction on any instrument (the recorder).

comment Musical Harmony: When to use more than three chords
These are all fine questions, but it would be best if you would split them up into three separate questions.
