When I was taking jazz lessons in Boston, I was complaining to my teacher that I wasn’t as good as I wanted to be and he said something like, “You will never be as good as you want to be so you should only be doing this if you enjoy the process”. The process of practicing and growing. I feel like that applies to much of life. Another useful lesson I got from my college classical trumpet teacher was, “You should be excited to discover your weaknesses. Because identifying them is what allows you to get past them”.SHAWN, NYC
