Practice is a great way to hear that wonderful sound come out of the bell.
I'm loving it
Things are starting to happen for me
Rediscovering my air, getting used to new horn and mouthpiece
I think I'm using less pressure than I ever have
Gotta stop typing and start blowing
Thanks for the comments. While the confession is over, the practice of practicing is not. Leaving for my Saturday three trumpet (Bb, C and D) practice. Two sessions, each an hour or more. And there is tomorrow too. Weekends: nirvana.
So many parts of life are a downhill slide even though we try to delay, mitigate and avoid the decline. Practising gives me something that improves little by little and promises to provide challenges and satisfaction for a long time to come. I like technical exercises partly because they allow progress to be meaured. Equally, it's nice to just sit down and improvise... and if it gets too easy, move into a harder key.
I love to practice, my day doesn't feel complete don't. I love hearing myself improve over time and it helps me get the most out of my lessons. If I am going to pay a lot of money for lessons, I want to improve as much as I can between them.
Hey fellows, did you catch the phrase in the OP's text, "The progress is owned... That speaks volumes to me. Playing trumpet takes way too much practice and dedication to dislike the moments we have the horn in hand. When you have a job, kids and all that you find those few moments become golden, treasures. After high school you won't find to many people who admit being trumpet players who don't like to practice. We see their equipment on E-bay! True story... I knew a guy who refused to practice or learn about his golf swing. He only wanted to play on the course. He died two years ago never getting below 100 AND wondering why not?
I indeed love to practice.... and since i am not a pro player and just learning, other than cleaning or buying instruments it is the only form of trumpet interaction for me, lol.
I do love it. Learning a new song, or passage, nailing something and having it sound good, keeping my wife away from me for an hour, all very therapeutic and very fun.
YUP, I LOVE IT TOO.
Can't say I love to practice; what I love is the result of all that practice. Does that count?
Perhaps... But just think how many MORE results you would get out of it if you LOVED it.
