d/l a fingering chart and do long tones (sounding a good tone on the horn without wavering, and using good airflow via good embouchure) on all your notes. Youtube on proper handling/embouchure. and how to oil keys.

I'm not a big brass fan when playing in church bands. Many times people are out of key or showboating over the other instruments. I also get annoyed with drummers all over the place. No offense though. I do like solos with brass instruments or if what they play was rehearsed.
Vision without action is just day dreaming. I miss practicing.
