    Due to untimely cercumstances I have not been able to practice at all. First i had a vaction, then when I got bck I got my widsom teeth removed. All in all it has been about four weeks.

    What I would like to know is what is the most effecent way to build my chops up for marching band so I do not kill my chops? I am thinking longtone, lip slurs, and mp buzzing. Am I on the right track or am i missing something?

    Any help will do...

    Thanks,
    JHarris

    That sounds like a pretty good plan to me....just don't push your limitations. Start slowly and work your way back up. It's just like any other physical activity - you can't just go out an bench press 300 pounds from the start. You have to build yourself up to that.

    sounds like you know the drill --- but be patient with the atrophy in your chops - work slowly carefully, and softly, don't get impatient -- it will come back.
    I quit for 7 yrs --- (Im 45) but hey - careful, soft, intelligent, repetetive, focused practice --- it comes back
    and YOUR YOUNG -- you bounce back

    Wow - given that this thread is 6 years old, I hope that the OP got things going ok and got through marching band season. 6 years ago. :D

    Kingtrumpet:
    Is there a reason for you to keep bringing up threads that are years old?

    Kingtrumpet,
    while the content of old threads may apply today, the thread initiator and many that posted back then, even if they are still with the community really aren't interested anymore. The problem is either solved or the trumpet is collecting dust. You wouldn't try to tell your mom how to give birth anymore, would you?

    Please refrain from digging this old stuff up - or if they apply to you, start a new thread.

    Rowuk,
    just in case I couldn't figure out the private message thingy either -- here is your post

    rowuk,

    sorry - I am not perfect like you -- that is why you are a moderator and I am not --- My oversight on the thread dates --- I see where the date is now -- Normally I just search a topic that I am looking for advice in -- I don't always look at the date before I respond--- I will check dates from now on.
