I've been playin trumpet for about 10 years now. Throughout jr high and high school, I relied a lot on natural talent never really practicing while still remaining the best trumpeter in school. Now in college, though, I'm a "big fish in a gigantic ocean" and my abilities have proved average at best. I'm ready/hoping to up my game to get to the top again. I was just wondering what good practice routines are as of right now kind of just: warm up, practice some pieces, play long tones, play some technical stuff then warm down (in thatorder). Also, what is the best way to maximize the use of the Arban's and Clarke Characteristic studies. As of right now I just slowly work my way through a few exercises at a time--should I take it an exercise a time per week?
