The traditional practice philosophy, especially for brass players, is that a minimum amount of practice is necessary to “maintain” the musician’s current skill level. Only the practice done, over and above that minimum amount, counts towards progress on the instrument. This is the traditional wisdom.
But it’s untrue!
It is possible to practice in a way that every minute of practice counts towards the musician’s progress. Five minutes of practice turns into five minutes of progress. Four hours of practice turns into four hours of progress.
