Sooner or later, its going to be January 1st, 2010! Which for me personally means setting up a goal or two for the year. What are your goals in music, or more specifically trumpet, that you wish to set for 2010? And how are you planning to accomplish that goal? For me I want to try and increase my range and the quality of the notes within the new range so I can get lead for jazz. The range for the lead charts typically go up to a B above high C, as a limit. My range is getting to be a reliable, solid D above high C. To get to my goal, I am going to concentrate to hopefully gain a note every month through playing lots of scales, arpeggios, lip slurs, and ultimately higher range pieces, while making sure to not decrease the concentration (time is not how I measure my practice sessions, I measure it on a concentration/result kind of scale) on my other aspects of playing. Now its your turn TM, what are your music goals for the new year?
