how to develop endurance

Post by norbie2018 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 2:31 pm

So I'm planning to do a recital at a local church this winter and decided to play through a couple of tunes I plan on playing. They're not performance ready, but I thought it'd be a good idea to run straight through them. My chops were trashed before I got through two of them and I'll be playing 2-3 more plus at least a couple for trombone and voice. How do I go about building up the endurance I needed to make it through a full recital? I'm not in school and trembling is an avocation for me. Thanks!

Proper warm up. Long notes. Lip flexibilities. Daily, frequently with rest and recovery between sessions/exercises. Warm down. As well as working on the pieces and other things you enjoy. Remember it’s fun!
