I agree. I understand facetime to be playing while paying attention to something else - like watching TV or reading a book at the same time. I maintain that this does more harm than good. I did not say that the trumpet is not physical. I said it is more mental. Any working pro will tell you that one needs BRAINS to get through a 4 hour gig. They will also know how much concentration is required to do the job correctly regardless of the length. I am aware of the claims of the Nintendo Generation and their ability to multitask (television and computer at the same time, studying with a walkman playing, trumpet and reading, telephone and driving............... I read this phenomena differently. Those that have a need for continual stimuli are afraid of being alone, of silence, of being confronted with ones own thoughts. A very sad development! This also shows an inability to CONCENTRATE on the job at hand. Facetime as I just defined it is destructive. Music digs down to the soul. Silence is a VERY big part of getting to know ourselves and the depth of our creative ability. Give me a break with excuses for 50% trumpet methods. Doing nothing is better than doing something badly.
