I'm about to graduate from school and begin my career as a freelance tuba player. I have been noticing a trend that many musicians will graduate and either stay at a particular level, or even more frequently, drop in ability after a couple of years. I'd like to know what you feel was the best way you kept in shape, or improved, after school. Was it simply a matter of regular practice, playing with musicians of a high caliber, a particular daily routine, etc.? Thanks.
