I am starting to realize that the brain can have negative affect of ones progress.
We can talk our selves into a standard of playing.... buy saying this I mean that if we come across something that is a little difficult does our subconscious
go in a negative frame, and before we know it a clam or missed notes are a result. I do understand about practicing a piece slowly until the notes come automatically.
But I sometimes think that we our selves are our own worst enemy...We can talk our selves into the mistakes without realizing.
I suppose this is just another aspect in ones progress to overcome in our advancement as a trumpet player ..
I would be very interested in your commits and suggestions about all of this
