While not pretending to be thorough, I can tell you a couple things to work on that will help:
Scales in all keys (as fast as you can play perfectly)
Listen to euph recordings
Play melodies from music books you have around.
With all the exercises, take in as much air as possible and play at a strong mf or better (someone will surely explain some breathing exercises). Be confident in your approach, and your abilities will soon follow your attitude.
