    Evening All.

    Having played strings (and electric at that!) for more years than I care to remember, I was encouraged to take up a horn of some sort. As my son plays the trumpet I opted for cornet as I prefer the mellower sound.
    For a period of a few months last year I took some lessons but work got in the way; I am getting set to start up again.

    What tips can people give about practice time, exercises, etc?

    Welcome to tMP Jason, and I hope you enjoy sharing with us.

    As I'm predominantly a tuba player I shall leave the detailed advice to others, but long notes and hymn tune playing will always help, whatever the instrument.
  3. Agreeing with Peter. Save the trechnical stuff till your lip is responsive.
