My recipe for ALL students is a daily routine. This should be a minimum of 20 minutes and up to maybe an hour. These are exercizes that you play EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! Once you have had a routine for at least 6 months, THAT will tell you where you are on a particular day. That is the only real way to figure out what is going down.
Even on a bad day, players with a good routine have enough stability to get through.
The routine should consist of breathing, long tones, slurs and basic tonguing. After the routine comes the practice session. A routine is NOT a warm up!!!!!!
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
