This week I’m beginning work at the University of North Texas as a Teaching Fellow. I will be directing the 7:00 lab band, and working with Mike Steinel in the improvisation and jazz theory courses at UNT. A few people have asked what I’m practicing, and so I thought I’d put up my planned practice regimen for the fall of 2012. Many of these exercises I have taken verbatim from studies by Bill Adam, Robert Baca, and Pat Harbison. I have tried to design a practice routine that will not only continue development as a jazzer, but also as a trumpet player. I hope you find this routine helpful and can use it in developing your own practice regimen.
