  • Use a music stand and sit in a chair that promotes good posture, poise, and playing position.
  • Develop good habits. Kick the bad habits.
  • Practicing two hours a week is excellent, but not all at once. Try 3-4 shorter sessions to promote better muscle memory.
  • Use SmartMusic & Make Practicing Fun!
  • Find a quiet place to practice and get away from TV, video games, phone, and other distractions.
  • Ask for help.
  • Brass players may not be able to practice for extended periods of time because of the physical demands of the embouchure.
  • Follow a structured practice routine that includes warming up and building range.
  • Be resourceful.
  • Take the time to develop your instrumental technique and improve your overall musicianship.
