Here are 4 tips on how to have a more productive practice session.

Items mentioned in this podcast;

Tonal Energy– The app I use for my metronome, drone, tuner, and recorder.

The “Edirol” digital recorder I use– The one is a little pricey but it sounds great!  I also hear that the less expensive ones sold by “Zoom” are also good.  I, however, use this Edirol digital recorder.

My practice log– You can also download this for free from my website at https://www.jefflewistrumpet.com/beginningbook/
