    I have never been to the convention.

    What does it mean when it says "Warm up with xyz person"
    Do you bring your trumpet?

    What about "Master class with XYZ"

    Do you walk around with a trumpet all day?
    Does anyone bring a trumpet?

    Thanks

    Joe,

    definitely bring your horn or mouthpiece.

    The warmups are group warmups... for everyone (at least they have in the past).

    A lot of people just carry their mouthpiece to try out the massive toys... uh horns available.

    How do you do the warm up if you don't have a trumpet?

    Warming is overrated anyway :)

    PS: Bring your horn to the warmups!

    I meant for wandering the exhibits its often easier just to bring your mouthpiece.

    The warmups are for students and players to experience the leader's idea of a warmup. Bring your horn for this if you attend. I usually sleep in.

    Bring a mouth piece for playing horns in the exhibit area.

    Master classes are for everybody. A lecture by a master. There are opportunities to play your horn for the master. Bring a piece you are working on or a specific concept of trumpet playing and receive expert advice in front of a large group of people. I have seen/heard people play for Allen Vizzutti a come away from it with real enthusiasm. All the masters are top notch teachers. It helps if you arrange in advance to play for them or sometimes there is a sign up sheet.

    You can tote your horn all day. Most get stashed in locked car trunks.
