    Lip buzzing!

    I am also a big advocate of lip buzzing. I will bring a mouthpiece on vacation if I am "forbidden" to bring my trumpet by the powers that be (though i can sneak my pocket trumpet into the trunk of my car!). If you want to you can buzz your lips and then buzz into a ring made with your thumb and forefinger, "bronz cheer" style.

    I also like to play a bit of tenor sax, too, though not practical for vacation time.

    I gave up these mechanical physical exercises a long time ago. When I'm off the horn, I usually op for the more spiritual pursuits all of which help my trumpet playing in terms of musicianship and expression.

    Kissing cute french hornists. (German ones work too, but they are rare.)
