Very cool, thanks Pete. Glad you’re having success with that.

That makes sense. I’ve never tried meditation for playing trumpet but that makes a ton of sense.

Our minds are our biggest asset AND our biggest obstacle, often times within the same practice session.

Learning to recognize when our minds and/or our actions are helping us and when they are an obstacle is very helpful.

I’m not perfect, by any means, but I’ve learned a lot and have come a long way in both my playing and understanding how my mind / mindset impacts my playing and learning how / when to control it.

I hardly ever have what I used to think of as a “setback” any more. When I do have an off day playing, I usually know how to get myself out of it. But sometimes it’s physical too–the other day, I hadn’t slept much and was dehydrated; my playing wasn’t good, so I kept it short and put the horn away for the day. The next day, I felt / sounded great.

In my opinion, WindWorks provides a ton of insight/clues into how to recognize when we’re on the right track and when we’re getting in our own way.
