Phil Smith is the most relaxed looking - hands down
Tine Thing Helseth or Sergei Nakariakov !
Anyways, on the subject, many extremely efficient trumpet players still get this face when playing. It shouldn't be of relevance how you look - it's all about how you PLAY ! (in my opinion}
There are many examples of this.
1) She's a psychiatrict
2) I'm crazy
I've noticed that Alison Balsom has a very relaxed looking face when she plays the trumpet ...... I, on the other hand, seem to have a racing pulse when she plays the trumpet.
Deep sighing relaxes facial musculature.
Oh Turtle, I think you know.
I spent a few years in college working to get my posture more relaxed when I was playing - mostly to help me breathe better. I was working in an alterations shop at the time, and my boss let me use the bridal fitting room with its 3 way mirrors to practice in after hours. Made a huge difference in my sound, and i never had to change my face. Sometimes when you get your breathing right, everything else works itself out! Sometimes I wish I still had the shop to practice in - best practice room I ever had, and I could practice there all night without disturbing any neighbors!
I am just wondering, how many mirrors did you break in the process?
With my skills if I tried this, I would be much safer with a bridal room that involved horses. On seconed througt, it wouldn't make a difference where I tried this, and the mirrors would break with me just looking into them before I even touched the trumpet.
Flugelgirl, you also probably enjoyed the feedback from the concave of the 3-way mirrors.
Gmonady, you'll just have to find a 3 mirror setup made with 1" thick Lexan(tm). Unlikely, you'd break such a mirror then even if you threw a tantrum and tossed your instrument at such. No horse kick would either. Too, don't think you'd want to play your trumpet in a stable with a mare or even a stallion or both present ... especially your high energy jazz.
