What is your favorite warm-up?
Mine is in the Arturo Sandoval Book with the pedals. (Awesome)
I am really getting to where I lip buzz the majority of my warm up. I just feel like I get a *MUCH* better product if I lip buzz before I start.
Long tones, from as soft as you can do comfortably, to as loud as you can do comfortably. Work to make your louds and softs more and more efficient. Then I do Clarke Study 1, except I hold the starting note for three beats, before I begin the exercise. I like to think of my air collumn like:
That (Tried to make an arrow), with all the notes that I need to hit being inside the collumn. My goal right now is to be able to play a high C with what feels to me, and sounds to my audience as an equal amount of pressure as a second-line G. After that, I will begin sliding my range toward the low C, then start working for the pedals..
I like playing out of the Mike Sachs book.
A little bit of that as well
James Stamp method. Usually skip the mp buzzing and go straight to the horn.
As an addition to this question:
Do you warm up on your C or your Bb?
I warm-up on my Bb and my 1-1/2C, even if I'll be playing my C, or only doing lead work all day. Mainly because I know exactly how I'll feel after that. What's you all's take?
I do exercises from the Balanced Embouchure book which include practicing playing double pedals in tune, then longtones, then a chromatic scale as fast and high as I can, then slur exercises from the BE book
Allen Vizzutti's Book 1. You can do a ten min, 20 min routine that's very inclusive.
Or an hour, whatever you want.
I like to vary my warmup from day to day, depending on what's on and how I feel. Here are five that I do:
1. Keith Johnson's book "Progressive Studies for the High Register"
Preliminary Exercises & Exercise 3 (Exercise 5 if needed)
2. The warmup in Bud Brisbois/Lennie Niehaus "Trumpet Today" (extend
beyond E if needed)
3. Caruso Exercises 1-5, 7, 9, 11, 14, 17
4. George and Arnie's Range Builder (quick and powerful)
5. Maggio Warmup A and Exercise 1
-Buzzing. I have a few patterns I use, the main goal is to devlop my range in both directions. I will often use akeyboard, holding out the tonic pitch and buzz what ever pattern i am using that day(or week).
-Lip bends and Flow studies , from the Sachs book page 37 or the V. C. Flow studies book.
Boyde Hood mouthpiece drills ........ complete with bass tr. mp. for #1.
