Johnelwood, thanks for the reply. This was very much a post to gauge other peoples thoughts on the idea, great to hear how you think about it.
I 100% agree about the mental and physical fluctuations being regular and normal. As someone who is 17 years into this game we call trumpet playing I have mountains of expectations about what things should sound and feel like. If only there was an instant reset button that I could press and start over with everything the way it should be…but then of course I wouldn’t know everything I know now about playing.
