I find it interesting with the talk about the different "methods" that exist, who studies or advocates what. I have certainly learned stuff to better my playing with all the discussion. However, as a weekend warrior as far as trumpet playing, I find myself lacking the time and energy to get in to a routine as far as practicing. What I end up playing is usually stuff I have for my next gig. Absent a gig in the near future, I find an etude book to blow some stuff out of. I haven't the foggiest idea what "method" or "school" that I subscribe to. I have been blessed with some good teachers that have taught me some fundamentals that make sense. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise. I generally take what works for me, and discard what does not.
