    What motivates you to practice?? especially in a bad day. Mabie it is an article, photo, video, song, piece or something you think on??

    I just read this ByronStripling.com/Tips then i just feel the need to practice.

    I am motivated to getting better on my trumpet to the point where someday, maybe someday, I will kick Vulgano Brothers tushy.

    Every time in my life where I didn't practice, I was not able to play the way that I wanted to. It did not take long to learn the lesson that my mind and body were giving me.

    I do not need externals. My personal expectations of EVERY NOTE are more than enough. I practice more when listening to really great music regardless of where it comes from.

    When I don't practice I suck ... and I hate that feeling.

    I hate being limited. Sustained practice has decreased my limitations. That simple.
    Of course, it can take significant effort to overcome the frustration of the moment on bad days. When that happens, I recall on how bad days were a year ago and I feel better.

    the love of the horn and music should be motivation on its own.
    But in today's envelopment there seems to a lot of distractions, where we can get lost and wonder around aimlessly.

    Have a plan and try to stick with it but also enjoy what you are doing, even on bad days or days where motivation is low, just putting the horn to your face with a few minutes of long tones and listening is a great benefit.

    I think that brass playing is a way of life and should be considered so .

    cheers Chenzo
