Download- 60 Minute Practice Routine
Your warm-up will begin your lip development and I strongly recommend that the first portion should be done on the mouthpiece alone. I have included a short warm-up which includes buzzing on only your mouthpiece (5 minutes). Be sure to produce a full, rich sound on every note. Fill your lungs completely and begin each note with just the air. Do not tongue any of these notes.
Begin these exercises slowly and as you become more comfortable with the keys, increase the tempo. Keep your dynamic level at a P level and be sure to fill your lungs before every line. All notes are to be slurred (5 minutes).
Lip Flexibility Exercises
Dynamics should follow the line so that the highest note is the loudest. Take full breaths for each exercise and hold the last note out (10 minutes).
TAKE A BREAK
Make sure that you are in control at all times. Do not rush. Push each valve down soundly and continue at a controlled rate. On exercises you feel uncomfortable with, repeat it four times before moving on (15 minutes).
Advanced arpeggio studies
As in the first arpeggio studies, begin exercises slowly and as you become more comfortable with the keys, increase the tempo. Keep your dynamic level at a P level and be sure to fill your lungs before every line. All notes are to be slurred (10 minutes).
