    Work on what you were working on before you stopped.
    Do lip slurs. Pick a valve and slur as high and as low as you can go and still maintain a soft warm unbrassy sound with a smooth transition from note to note. Go through all 7 valves. They are:
    0
    123
    13
    23
    12
    1
    2
    Do an honest minute on each valve.
    Read Mouthpiece Pressure Assessment.
    Watch Urban Agnas video on "Flow". Pay particular attention to what he says about relaxation, breathing, and posture when playing.
    good luck
