    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..

    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

    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.
