    Good practice material.

    Ok, considering my "come-back" status, I have the following from 20 years ago that I use to practice:

    Max Schlossberg: Daily Drills & Technical Studies
    H.L. Clarke

    Anything happen in the past 2 decades that I should look toward?

    As always, all advice is appreciated!

    those will keep you busy. Those are 3 of the best practice books a trumpeter could ever have in his arsenal. If you can play all of these books cover to cover, you will have the ability to do many great things on the trumpet. There are many other great practice books like: James Stamp, E.F. Goldman and Robert Getchell.

    I would add in a flexibilities book, such as Irons, or Colin. <---get both!

    Also, lots of guys have re-done clarke exercises to include major/minor keys and different scale modes. All the Clarke etudes in different keys. It makes Clarke much more technically challenging.

    You may want to find a book / technic on going through Arbans. e.g. Arbans is organized in many sections so a typical routine may pull exercises out of several areas. e.g. Prescott Technic system. I think if look around there are other guides out there similar that help you follow through Arbans in a methodical way. Irons is a must and with the clarke studies... also think that you should approach it in a methodical way of which exercises you go through and typically following the exercises down the key scales is not a bad approach.

    You might want to get some etude and some song type books so that you can have fun playing versus just technical work.
