This fingering chart includes what I use as regular options with alternatives based on your horn's quirks and musical contexts. I urge my students to be fluent in both the F and B sides of the horn to optimize performance choices.
This tonguing exercise was inspired by the "Lip Flips" in Pilafian/Sheridan's Brass Gym. I find many tonguing exercises start with longer notes but I struggled with fast notes right away. This exercise is completely chromatic using gradual rhythms for finger coordination and change of the lip.
Multiphonics are becoming a more common extended technique. This handout is from my 2018 lecture at IHS Mid-South detailing how to start from square one.
This is a practice log I have many students use to keep track of how they spend their time preparing.
