    What inspires you to play and practice more? What gives YOU that warm fuzzy feeling deep down?

    Personally, if I have a good day I want to practice more. Or if I watch any Rocky movie. Or if I have a lesson. My teachers pretty inspirational. ;-)

    Listening to music with horns in it really inspires me, like, "Oh wow, I could do that, too..."

    I learn much and am inspired by listening to players better than myself practice. Hearing someone stop; reapproach the lick in question, can teach much.

    Just the thought of all those millions of dollars flowing like a waterfall into my bank account. Or not.

    I'm almost constantly listening to music (like right now) and the knowledge that I can make it myself gives me joy beyond compare. I also know that my trumpet playing is my greatest talent and asset, so when I'm not at school, eating, sleeping, or feeding my considerable TV-on-DVD addiction, I'm usually playing that horn.

    Talking about specifics that get me going though, every concert I see where there's a pro with a trumpet involved really lights my fire.
