From your experience, how long does it take to get back in shape? I am a university student and I have been in my school's top Wind Ensemble for the past two years. However, I was on a month and a half long trip, during which I was not able to play or buzz at all. I just got back, and as expected, I am bad out of shape, mainly in respect to technique and endurance. I have an audition for my Wind Ensemble again in a about a month and a half, August 16th. Practicing every day, how long should I expect it to take for me to get back into normal shape?
