To "practice what I play"..........
To save up all of my pocket money for the next several years to get a picc
To move my embouchure towards the centre of my mouth (it's been drifting a little to the left)
To focus on technique more than just picking up my horn and playing - Make sure embouchure's right in the centre; posture's right; keeping my shoulders relaxed
And, last of all, arrange some music for music class in school next year for performance assessments (solo and group of 3-6(Class of about 10))
I too get distracted and that, I think, stems from not having a specific daily practice routine. This is why I will try to embrace ROWUK's formula.
To stop making excuses for why I can't get in the practice room....
Perhaps your embouchure is drifting because it doesn't want to be in the center, where there is no requirement for it to be. It is drifting for a reason. You might want to consider a consult with a "chop doc", before you try to move it back.
To do something better than I did yesterday everyday.
Model T, silver plated, with a ML bore, Gold Brass Bell, 1st slide ring, pinky ring on the leadpipe, rounded bell crook + tuning slide, amado keys, stress relieved bracing, and whatever else I can come up with.
oh yeah. Dream horn, baby.
One step closer to Wayne...
Really? Thanks for the advice, my (Private, fully qualified) Trumpet Teacher said something about if it gets really hard to try and move it back, that it's probably OK for it to stay there (it's only half a centimetre, maybe a little more), but the muscles toward the centre of the lip have a slightly better shape/structure to produce good tone for a long time.
I'll ask him why it matters so much, seeing as my tone was complimented quite alot by the examiner in my recent ABRSM Exam, in which I achieved distinction.
