    Hey I was wondering what the best way to end a practice session is? I'm commonly in the high-G area by the time I'm ready to stop and at that point I lip-slur progressively down to petal tones. Is this the best way? Thanks.

    That will work. Try to go as low as you can and play until you lips "tingle'. Obviously, this is a no pressure cool down.

    Did someone tell you to warm down?
    In all my years of playing I have NEVER warmed down. I never saw any of the major players I have worked with warm down.
    Put the horn in the case!

    You don't have to do it, but you can if you want to. Your choice. Works for me but I'm not a pro.;-)
