Hi all, Well I have to admit that I was considerably unimpressed with my last thread, "what makes a great principal trumpet". Talk about trying to cash in on previous success! How lame! So here is a new one. What do you like better, practicing or performing. I have to say that I much prefer practicing to performing. Don't get me wrong I love concerts and I'm a trumpet player so of course I love applause, but there is nothing for me quite the feeling of getting better on the trumpet. Nothing quite matches it. When I can hear something that has improved over a few weeks I get chills. I swear it's true. So what do you like better, or said another way, what do you enjoy more praciticing or performing? Let me hear it people! Best, Andrew ps. I know there are still some good threads that I haven't posted such as auditions. I will get to them, but they are pretty involved and I want to make sure that they are well thought out. I also know there are some questions I haven't answered. I'll try to get to those soon also.
