I just read an article in the NYT that says just sitting and watching TV is bad for your health weather you get an hour of excercise in a week or not. What I am wondering is playing trumpet considered being sedentary? On one had it seems like it takes a fair amount of physical exertion to play the thing, but then again I have seen some ripe old players that were significantly too healthy, but then again that could be the fifths. What do you think playing trumpet sedentary or not. I guess if I do it standing then it isn't.
