Is it safe to asume, then, that you're not studying with anyone?
I had an instructor and am thinking about it again this year; he is an older gentleman with a Ph.d in brass instruction, I believe. Out of two years with him I got surprisingly little, as he focuses more on "Let's play your piece", which is understandable; there aren't the greatest of musicians that he tends to teach nowadays (at the HS). I have addressed this (structure of a practice session) with him but didn't come to a solid conclusion as to a practice session or a warm-up that actually warms me up, personally. There is a cloud of a session idea in Rubank's but it doesn't include buzzing, warm-downs...
Thanks for the input.
Thx for the input. I'm looking at the article.
Now, that's one nice article. Thanks; it helps. I wish I had the books they refer to other than the Arban (those 14 characteristic studies are quite difficult).
[edit2]So, what I got (generally speaking, as I can't be 100% specific without the materials) from the article is 1 relaxed playing focusing on making the right sounds, 2 technique and 3 power.
[edit3]...which is good, because, surprisingly, a short, three-line warm-up/chorale that I wrote for the HS trumpet section follows this pattern. Yes.
Sigmund Herring's Progressive Etudes. Its a Red book.
VOXMAN Cocert and Contest Pieces for trumpet.
I'm also thinking of Concone....
Herring gives you a lot of notes to work on making sound beautiful. The Voxman is actual pieces at the level I believe you're at. In my honest opinion, playing actual pieces gives the player a lot of stuff to work on. You try to make the piece sound like it should, makes you work harder. The Concone is beautiful stuff, really really REALLY lyrical...
