    Hey everyone, I just have a question about warming up...what is your usual warm-up routine? I usually do some buzzing, low long tones, and Stamp exercises. However, i've been doing the same routine for about 8-months now and am looking for some new routines to see if it helps my playing.

    just curious. :)

    Thanks!

    I do scales in every key I know by memory, about 9. Then I work on the ones that I dont know. Then I do the F and Bb warm up, where you start on a concert F or Bb and go down 1/2 step and back up. Then you keep doing it until you cant do a clean slur down and back up.

    YEAH, pretty much that --- and don't forget the arpeggios on the scales either --slur or tongue, either way is fine!!!!!!!!!!! at the end of the warmup, I sometimes give a scale or two the old double or triple tonguing, to get that tongue warmed up also -----------

    You don't need a new routine. What you are doing is slowly building a firm foundation. Add to this established (and very sensible ) routine with additional chop building material. Go to Chickowiz flow studies, establish a firm, not overblown
    upper register by slowly expanding the flow studies. Bending exercises are beneficial to me and others as they help in
    feeling air flow as well as aperture strength. Schlossberg is a vital part of most players development. Tom Stevens new book is a great supplement to Schlossberg. Thibaud exercises are good to add as you become more accustomed to how your chops are working.

    Dont neglect musical material.........and approach most of it slowly as if you are still playing long tones and Stamp.
    Your playing should jump start .

    Good luck in your quest
