Daily Routines for Euphonium by Philip Sinder is suitable for advanced high school through professional euphonium players.
Daily Routines for Euphonium is a comprehensive way to ensure that you practice all your fundamental euphonium skills every day. Practicing fundamentals is the most important practice session of your day because when your fundamental skills improve, everything you play gets better. Daily Routines contains nine routines: Basic Routines 1 and 2; Easy; Articulation; Flexibility and Accuracy; Valve Dexterity; Lyrical; Duet and Intonation; and Euphonium and Tuba Duet. Each routine is further divided into nine skill categories: long tones and easy patterns; crescendo and diminuendo; articulation; low and resonant playing; lip slurs; finger focus; subito dynamic changes; scales/intervals/arpeggios; and high and low range expansion. By combining the nine skill categories with each routine, Daily Routines assures that all of your fundamental skills will improve equally over time.
