Saint-Jacome, Grand Method for Trumpet or Cornet (Carl Fischer, 2002), 114.
Things to remember when you practice
1. 5 times 10 breathing exercise before you begin
2. Rest where necessary
3. ACCURACY BEFORE SPEED
4. BUILD UP - DON'T TEAR DOWN
5. BIG BREATH - CHEST UP - SHOULDERS BACK (NOT UP)
6. LIFT FINGERS HIGH - STRIKE THE VALVES HARD
This exercise is part of a customized 5 part lesson plan. My teacher, Bruce Haag is a certified Claude Gordon instructor, and the practice routines he assigns serve to set goals for progress and to help the student understand exactly what is causing the progress.
