    10th Grade Trumpet Player Says This Is His Quick Warm-up

    I just got a note from trumpet pro and long-time trumpet
    teacher John Baker (Tampa area) that one of his students who
    has been working his way through all of the "Give
    It The 3rd Finger" studies book uses three specific
    exercises as a quick warm-up when he doesn't have
    time for a more thorough one.

    It's exercises 1, 3, and 30 -- memorize them and play
    all the articulations indicated says John's 10th grade

    So I gave it a try and thought about all the quick
    benefits to doing this that he discovered: finger
    technique, air flow and speed, tone, flexibility,
    articulation, slurring, single tongue, K tongue,
    double and two forms of triple tonguing, and giving
    your brain a little workout for keeping you sharp
    and thinking well.

    If you have the book or the free sample pack you
    can try out his discovery for yourself.

    If you don't have the book or free sample pack
    you can get yours here:

    I guess I could have titled this...

    "Young Dog Teaches Old Dog New Tricks"
    (...even if the Old Dog wrote the book)


    In joy!
