Trumpet Challenge Week 13

It’s been a number of weeks since I have posted anything relating to the Trumpet Challenge. I can honestly say on this occasion that I have been spending some time playing my trumpet, in fact usually twice a week, I just haven’t done a weekly update on progress.

I have continued to record my sessions and hopefully in the near future I will workout how to have these all uploaded and available for viewing…it just hasn’t happened yet!

My improvement is quite slow, the focus has been on long notes and improving my tone quality/accuracy of notes from pitching. This has taken another turn recently with me starting to play the trumpet in the schools intermediate band on occasions for rehearsals. There’s still a long way to go but I do fee there has been some improvement. I need to keep working on pitching and not overblowing in an ensemble setting. I hope to continue to pursue the band option over the next month – let’s see whether my theory on playing in bands accelerates one’s musical development!
