In this video, Bryan Davis shares a series of flexibility exercises to add variety to your daily Trumpet practice. They are an example of the sort of exercises Bryan writes for his own use, changing up time signatures, note groupings and pitch order, to keep him concentrating while practicing! This selection is notated between the 2nd and 3rd partials only, although the patterns could be applied to any pair of partials.
