I'll add competent instruction!
What should I practice precisely? I will be getting my hands on an Arban's within the next week.
What should I do to build confidence? I know I can play well; I do it alone. How can I do well in front of others better?
Don't play for them, play for you.

Make sure you have a teacher and structure your practice, ie 15 mins warm up, 45mins aurban, 15mins lip slurs, half hour rest, half hour scales, half hour tunes/sight reading
you also need to learn to listen and learn to play musically, kind of like your using your trumpet as your voice and you are singing.
