• Add air attacks to warmup
  • do very specific isolated work on tricky passages
  • slur tongued passages and vice versa as an exercise
  • when playing in the high register use less air


  • Remember to use the same mouthpiece at school as you do at home
  • Be aware of posture when playing: keep your feet flat on the ground, sit on the edge of your chair, make sure the angle of the leadpipe of your horn doesn’t get too steep
  • Play things by ear
  • Work on Bad Romance for next week

Happy Practicing!
