1st of all, I just had surgery (appendectomy) and couldn't play for a while. In fact, I still shouldn't play, at least until they take the staples out (taken out next Monday, that's about two weeks of no playing at ALL). How should I break my trumpet and self back into routine? (generally 1 hour a day, give or take a quarter hour). 2nd, how often do you practice, and what is the structure of the practice session? [edit note 7-8-05]Confirmed: I cannot play. I just tried.
