There are many reasons why a trumpet player should have a daily routine. I will list them one by one in the article. It is hoped that this brief introduction to the concept of a daily routine will be valuable to the reader in their development of their own regular practice regimen. While the books and studies mentioned in the article are quite valuable, they are certainly not the only books available. This author encourages us to experiment with many different trumpet method books and seek to find a daily routine that best helps us prepare for our day of playing, recover from prior days of playing.
