I don't really care what my students call me. I get my maiden and married names. I get shortened version of my married name. As long as they aren't rude and don't call me by my first name, I'm not really that picky.
I bought my instrument in 2003 at tmea. I'm working on a graduate degree on the same instrument. I might get a new mouthpiece, but I might not. Why spend the money?
