I'm a junior in high school that aspires to join the army and be in their band program. Both to travel and play while getting paid for it and to get a good college education using tuiton aid or the GI bill. I currently can't afford private lessons so I do the most of my playing in my school jazz, stage, and pit bands and I play at home. I currently only have three trumpet books (Foundations for a Superior Performance, By Richard Williams & Jeff King; Rubank Study's Advance Method, by WM. Gower & H. Voxman; and finally, Standard of Excellence Enhanced Comprehensive Band Method, by Bruce Pearson) and I also have copies of almost every piece I've ever played. Here's my normal Practice Routine: 30 mins -- Long Tones, Lip Slurs 20 mins -- Break 30 mins -- High Range, Articulations, Sight Reading 20 mins -- Break 60 mins -- varies activites (working on show music, high range, lip slurs, etc.) So do you guys have any suggestions or comments? I would greatly appreciate them.
