I have to confess that I rarely practice at all.  I have a ten minute warm
up covering a 4 and a half octave range gradually expanding from 2nd line Bb
that I do before gigs or rehearsals.  Even with long lay offs it seems to
get my chops back into good shape.  I don't recommend this if playing is
your first love.  Mine is arranging and composing.
