What do you use for a daily practice routine?
Dynamics and long tones. I also like Arturo Sandovals three volume instructional course with audio CDs to listen along. Also, after scales, for improv, I like to "join in" to some favorite music on the stereo, up loud. it helps me find the key fast and improvise vocaly, which is what much music is about, and is a fun break from all those pesky dots on paper. You can listen more to your intonation this way as well.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Lets see...
I warm up with some pedal tones and several long tones. After that, I go through my major scales and chromatic scales. Then, I sharpen up my technique with some material in both the Arbans and Clarke books. After all this, I whip out a tune or two and work on those. Then, I do some range work. When I'm done with my routine, I cool down with some pedal tones.
But, I'm also looking for some jazz material so I could practice my improv (ex: Aebersold's, ect.)
