    Casual Double High C etc.

    Hi there Bob, I am absolutely amazed at what I experienced today, I watched your beginning movie and tried your first warmup - I took a glance and though okay cool I will get to the "F" and that will have to do for today, this is my normal playing range, I was really surprised that the "G" came out easily and then the "A" and the first sign of difficulty was the "Bb" and then I was able to play the "C" with less strain than ever before.

    I have never been able to play the scale up there before doing your warmup in fact very really have I played a "G" and only on rare occasion have I accidentally hit a double high "C". If it was only the warmup, I could have said that it was a a chance and it will never happen again :-)

    However throughout the day, (I am busy preparing the Telemann Concerto No 2 in D on Piccolo Trumpet in A for a concert), I found that where I am normally done for after 15 - 20 minutes, that I was able to play it over and over again, the organist was amazed and we finished the rehearsal and I still had steam to play it again :-) I have never had this in fact I am playing one movement on Wednesday and was able to play it over and over again with another pianist for that gig :-)

    I did not expect this kind of reaction, I was not sure what to expect, but this sure seems at a first glance and try to be something amazing :-)

    I do not really understand what happened to my playing today, but hey it was great :-)

    Chris4,

    My warm up is a very soft, gentle approach with a small aperture. It is very simple and is based on the F scale in order to allow concentration on the muscle memory and fine tuning of the chops.

    A proper warm up can be the secret of many players success or failure. I have proved this with pros who used to not warm up. I find if I warm up for as little as a few second I can guarantee I will have a consistent performance because I have all the muscles working together properly.

    I warm up the KEY WORD is going UP 1st and warm up the lower notes later. No extreme playing.

    Hey, Bob...

    I love the idea of the upper register as being something to be approached casually and effortlessly. Bravo and thanks for the recent PM!

    All the best,
    ML
