I had double bypass surgery ten years ago. It was a proactive surgery due to results in my annual physical, so there were no preceding incidents. Before the operation, there is an instrument to measure lung capacity by inhaling and raising a ball in the apparatus. My doctor complimented me on my prowess. I told him that it was probably due to the fact that I played trumpet and sang for a living. A week after my bypass surgery (ribs spread, open heart stuff) I was in a recording studio playing F's. It hurt a little bit to inhale, but the exhaling through the horn was good therapy. My recovery was fast, and I credit trumpet playing with that.
Anecdotal and not scientific, but no charge for the info

Pretty music, good for the soul and spirit and when these go well, everything else does. Even if it doesn't, you still feel good anyway...I wanted to know primarily the good that can come from playing trumpet.

Listen to Albert Ayler :
"Music is the Healing Force of the Universe".
And trumpet playing is on the doctor's prescription.

If you think playing music is bad for your health it means you have a mental disease, so start playing and you'll feel better.
I just wish I hadn't taken 20 years off. My skills would be so much better.
I truly believe it is the only reason my COPD isn't any worse than it is.
