Mark used to live in Houston when he was in the Houston Symphony Orchestra. Today he is principal trumpet of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, one of the nation’s top trumpet spots.
I read an article over the weekend that I want all of my students to read. Now, it’s well known that I don’t pressure my students to practice. As you read the article, keep in mind that twenty hours of practice is NOT necessarily appropriate for every student. I believe that our goals should determine how much time we spend practicing per week and if you are my student, then you probably know that already.
