The Trumpet Professor's Tips and suggestions
Efficient Trumpet Practice
“Incorporating rest into your daily practice sessions can transform your trumpet playing”
“Rest as Long as it took you to play the previous exercise”
“It is important to rest before the lips begin to feel tired… do not practice when tired”
Maurice Andre, Daily Exercises for Trumpet
“One of the most time-honored rules of practice is to rest as much as you play…overuse problems would disappear completely if students observed this simple rule”.
“Play a minute, rest a minute”
Do not try to force your lips into submission as it will not work!
Incorporating a system of resting into your practice can help reduce fatigue, sore lip syndrome and help increase endurance and range.
Incorporating rest into your daily practice sessions can transform your trumpet playing.
It takes discipline to study the trumpet, the discipline to practice daily and also the discipline to practice correctly. If your not sure about how to go about resting, use the technique of resting as long as it took to play the last phrase. Do this religiously for a month and then evaluate its usefulness for yourself. Resting is an important component of SMART PRACTICE the quickest way to becoming a better player.
