We just finished a rehearsal with my Branson Trumpet Ensemble. There’s nothing better than sight reading new charts with good friends for a couple of hours.

Warm up, rest, flexibility exercises, rest. Lesson with Keith Fiala, got hammered intensely with a new endurance exercise he gave me, then off to work I went. Now my wife is making something that smells amazing downstairs......

Normal routine consisting of warm-up, work on flexibility studies, multiple tonguing, a couple of Characteristic Studies in the Arban, working on the Honegger Intrada, giving a private lesson, and ending the day with an old cornet solo in the Arban.
KT, thanks for the plug! Had a great chance to meet cyber_shake AKA Blaine, who droped in to see me at the Blue Whisp. This was so special and it really makes one feel great to connect with another TM member. I am hoping he survived our high energy rhythm section!

Hay Blaine, if my brother falls through, I'm a thinkin...
