I'm new to this forum and new to the trumpet as well (about a year)! I found that being a server at night allows me 1.5 to 2 hours a day practicing but I also found that I have 'good' days and 'bad' days. I'm wondering if my practice routine should be worked on a little. I typically start with Schlossberg # 5 #7 # 11 and #11a. Next, I slowly slur # 12. If I feel any strain on the third line I stop and go back to slurring # 11. Next I jump to exercise # 36 and slowly do the page. I move onto Clarke next. I'll do Etude V (Play the whole page in one breath) ((obviously taking a line at a time and perfecting it)).
After that I move onto the assignments my teacher assigned which usually consist of lots of Arban's and then a duet or two.
Just a little curious about two things. One, any suggestions to my warmup? Secondly, I've read that some people prefer a very lax set of warm ups that change day-to-day while others stick to the same warm-up everyday. Which camp do most people here belong to? Thanks again!
