Hi there, On Saturday I started playing the euphonium on account of the only grade 5+ euphonium player leaving the band this July. I love the euphonium's tone, so I was delighted by the chance to play it. I've been playing quite a bit over the weekend, and I've taken to it like a cat to my bed (I think that's the expression...), in other words, I have the technical ability to play all the pieces from band, and my tone is coming on wonderfully. Although I realise this is the honeymoon period and advancements will come much more slowly in the future, I'm very happy with how it's going. That is, until I picked up my trumpet today... I won't bore with the details, but I sounded similar to Maynard Ferguson (when he first picked up the trumpet)... Anyway, my question is, to anybody with experience in this, how should I lay out my practice. Should it be an hour trumpet followed by an hour of euphonium; an hour euphonium followed by an hour trumpet; play them simultaneously (that is, a piece or exercise on one followed by the same on the other); or just try them all and see what works best. I obviously would rather avoid the latter (hence the post) though it's probably the most likely, so that I can save myself a lot of time. Any advice to be had? Thanks in advance, P.
