Trumpet playing is like a drug for me, even though is bad for me I still do it. I still remember the day when I thought I was the ****. However, that quickly changed when I found out my chair, last chair. my teacher would always yell at me, and I began practicing like crazy. I would dedicate 1 hour everyday, and started lessons. After listening to myriad trumpet players, I felt like I wanted to play trumpet for a living. But looking back, I haven't improved at all, lessons only really helped me on reading and technique. I would do the bill adams routine everyday with no results. I sound ****. the amount of time I dedicate to playing isn't helping at all. listening isn't helping at all. All the underclassmen sound better than me. Is it time to take a break? I feel like trumpet playing isn't good for me, but I still love the trumpet.
