After playing trumpet for many years, from grade school thru college and beyond, life got in the way and I stopped playing in 1986. Then about two years ago, I picked up the horn, dusted it off and started to play again. In the process, I have dabbled on and off, playing in church and community bands. Needless to say, after such a long lapse, I found myself to be terribly out of shape and have been frustrated by my lack of endurance and range. I'm getting to the point now where I'm not satisfied at all with my skills and am trying to build up endurance and get some of the range and technique I used to have back. Can anyone recommend a structured practice regimen / and trumpet method book that will help keep an "old guy" like me on track? I know regular practice is the key, but I find myself drifting back and forth / in and out of different practice routines and to date have been unable to make a whole lot of progress rebuilding my chops. Thanks.
