Last week I was away from home for several days and had to practice in the hotel. I must say this felt rather peculiar. As i was practicing staccato demisemiquaver triple Cs at pppppp my mind started wondering, i started thinking about other "unusual" places to practice. Many years ago i knew a couple of trumpet players that practiced in some interesting places. One used to practice at sundown upon the sand dunes near a large rural caravan site during his summer holidays. Another trumpet player i knew couldn't practice in his house because of his Pain in the A** neighbours, so he occasionally practiced about 12am in a carpark overlooking a major bridge and river; rather bizarre and beautiful if you can imagine it. Where is the most interesting place that you have practiced or played? Try and keep your answers clean! Happy 2009 B.U.M.
