    Sloppy Playing?

    I would argue that most sloppy playing comes from lack of patience. The player attempts pieces that are beyond his/her abilities without having done the requisite preparation. Also, many players do not have adequate instruction. Our schools are cutting back on the arts and many cannot afford private instruction. Band directors in the public schools have to prepare pieces for performance, marching instruction, arrange for buses, uniforms, etc., etc., so individual instruction is hard to come by. Lack of patience and lack of knowledge. So many players just don't know better. We can't just acknowledge that sloppy playing exists. We have to be willing to educate.

    Where does sloppy playing come from?

    Not thinking musically, tin ears, and poor concentration

    nerves

    sometimes it can be nerves and nerves can be settled by a lot of practicing

    I am going to be a cruel realist here.
    Everyone can have a bad day and lose focus and hence play sloppy. You can also be tired and play sloppy. These happen to me, but the more time I practice properly, the fewer times this happens.
    If, however, sloppy play is a constant, it is poor practice habits, a lack of talent or both. This does not mean you should put your horn away and learn to play the CD player. You have to learn to practice properly and work harder. Not one of the great players we can name did not work hard at the horn. For some, they might not have had to work as hard as others and it came easier, but they still worked hard.
