    I actually met Patrick a few years ago when he came to my city and soloed in the amateur group I'm a part of, haha. I have the breathing gym and should watch it again one of these days. When he led our group through those exercises I could play phrases two times longer than I could without doing them..

    If you don't have the Arban book, get one. I stole this from Trumpet Lessons
    The Complete Arban is broken into sections :

    First studies from pages 11-22
    (Play 1 page daily for a week)
    Syncopation 23-36
    (Play 1 page daily for a week)
    Slurs 39-56
    (Play 1 page daily for a week)
    Scale studies 59-87
    (Play 2 pages daily for a week)
    Turns,trills,shakes..... 91-122
    (Play 2 pages daily for a week)
    Intervals,Triplets & sixteenth notes 125-141
    (Play 1 page daily for a week)
    Chords 142-152
    (Play 1 page daily for a week)
    Triple Tonguing 155-174
    (Play 1 page daily for a week)
    Double & Applied Tonguing 175-190
    (Play 1 page daily for a week)
    After some of the smaller sections of the Arban are complete and you are used to this you can start working on :
    One of the 14 Characteristic Studies Pages 285-299
    and/or One of the 12 Fantaisies & variations pages 301-347.

    Don't just play through them, but strive for perfection as in really perfect, playing them like a talented professional.

    Have fun!

    I have the book and do exercises from 4-5 of the sections daily…not ready to structure my entire routine around it.
