Schlossberg, Clarke, & Arban here. By the way, the Clarke Characteristic studies has a couple pages on single tonguing that are gold. Who knew?!

So . . .

Long Note Drills & Scales in Schlossberg

Single tonguing in Characteristic Studies

Multiple tonguing in Arban

First Study in the Technical Studies

After the upper register returns (if it does), I'll expand into the other sections in Schlossberg.

What does your routine look like? How's it going?

I like to keep a practice log in Google Sheets so I can make sure I'm hitting everything I need to during the course of the week. The left side of this spreadsheet should give you an idea of what I've been working on these days!

It doesn't!

I'm a band director with a 1 year old and 4 year old, plus it's marching season. The only trumpet playing I'm doing right now is demoing in beginning band. I am going to start back up with Greg Wing's 20 minute routine, then work into more of his Adam stuff during my planning period as marching season winds down and I'm not so busy.

Turkle, too cool your chart!

Matt, there's light at the end of marching season

My routine looks very similar to yours. These books were good 40 years ago and they are still good.

I did add the Vincent Cichowicz Long Tone and Flow Studies. I play them very soft and "in the singing style". These books come with audio disks that I try to emulate.

I also invested in different music-minus-one books that either have discs or allow downloading the audio. So now I can "play with the band"

I started my comeback about 3 years ago. I am progressing slowly.

I did start the Balanced Embouchure method and this has been for me the best "invention" since the wheel.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.
Harry

I am less than a year into my real comeback. Played off and for a month or 2 for the 10 years prior though.

At first it was long tones (1930s),Clarke, Schlossberg and beginning Arban's to get my basic chops.

Now I am taking lessons and warm up with Claude Gordon Systematic Approach to Daily Practice Exercise I (every 3-4 weeks move on to another lesson).
Straight single tongue exercise
1 of the Irons
Then Arban's:
Scales
Interval's
Double and Triple tonguing
Art of phrasing
Characteristic studies
Jazz Duet book
Practice Symphonic band pieces

When I have time:
Jamie Ebersold books (learning to improvise)
back to Clarke

I am play in a community college Symphonic band on Tuesday nights and lessons on Monday so pretty full schedule for me!
Unfortunately work get's in the way of all the fun

I always warm up with the complete butler routine followed by the mase routine and then finish it off with the top tones challenge

I have two routines: one for when I have few minutes of practice which is just a bit of mouthpiece buzzing and some scales and one when I have more time. Also I'm trying to free buzz and do the pencil exercise everytime I can.
The shorter routine is something I do to avoid not playing at all.

I really hate this idea. It would hold me accountable for what I actually do, making a tangible record of my practice habits. Surely, there must be an easier way!

Interesting. The Chicago School has roots in River City.
