Delete first 3 or 4 characters in a field

I am doing a simple query and I need to delete the first 3 or 4 characters in the field.  Examples of the field would be:  

1. Alex Smith  
12. Aaron Rodgers

I only want the name, not the numbers or period.
I think I have done this before with the InStr function.
