Inside a rehearsal room in Dixon Hall, Tulane University senior Cleveland Donald practices playing "long tones" on his trumpet. A student in the jazz studies program, Donald says he engages in the exercise for 30 to 45 minutes each day. He can currently hold a note for 40 seconds and hopes to increase that time to a minute.
