Dear Manny, Thanks for your informative posts so far. As someone who plays 1st trpt in a major orchestra... Can you tell us a little bit of what you do to stay in shape for your job besides playing in the group. Do you have any favorite exercises or warm up routines.... How have your playing / practice habits changed as you continue to play.. I'll expand on this a bit futher later. I guess I just want to know what kinds of things you do as a trumpet player to stay in shape away from the group.
