Robert Schumann’s “Rules & Maxims for Young Musicians”

In the newly discovered and recently re-published work by Richard Shuebruk “The Cornet Player’s Guide, When, What, and How to Practice,” he explains that this essay was an inspiration to his study of the trumpet and that it is something we should all read and return to often. Until today I had never read this, but I am very glad that I have now. I will be keeping it here for future reference for myself and my students. I recommend that you do the same.
