    I generally try to see how high I can play, or I'll try sight reading something to get into the mood for practicing. Sometimes I'll even try playing a song from my ipod on my trumpet.

    We enjoyed having a fabulous young Finn named Tapio Paavilainen at Chosen Vale in our inaugural year. I believe that he's completing a M.Mus. in Manchester at the moment but you should also try to meet him at some point.

    Yes . I have been in contact with Jouko Harjanne many times. I have not met Pasi yet...but he is ofcourse on the list of "peoples to meet" :

    Re: Motivation.

    if i'm having trouble getting in the mood to play i'll typically put on some christian scott or royal crown revue and then pick up a book for a half hour. after that i usually want to practice for an hour or so. for some reason listening to superior players gets me in the mood.

    Re: Motivation.

    whenever I lack motivation I turn on a recording of Sergei, Woody Shaw, Wynton, Maurice, Ed, Cassone, Burns, Cat Anderson, Yo-Yo-Ma, etc etc etc....

    that usually snaps me out of my funk and I get back to work more excited than ever!

    Though it may sound boring, I practice theory. I take modes and play a solo based on the scale. It gets me motivated because I know that I can play, it very rewarding to play something of your own.

    Re: Motivation.

    My motivation is not wanting to make a fool of myself in public.


    I think this dates from the time when I was soprano cornet player in a championship section brass band.
    Living in an exposed position like that brought home to me the potential for personal embarrassment.
