Re: Warm-Ups - High School
For concert season, I incorporate elements of what's in the Blue Book, but I've written a fundamentals warmup for my students that includes basic percussion rudiments, lip slurs, an F Remington, and articulation exercises.
For marching season, I use the Ultimate Warm-Up.
For concert band, I use the Foundations for Superior Performance (aka the King book, aka the blue book).
For marching band, I've developed my own warm up based off of our concert warm up, and mixed with some of the other great available marching warm-ups out there. I've also written for it to match my marching fundamentals block work, so they can play and march at the same time. It took a while the first year, but I've made small changes each year to address issues that I notice need more attention. One day, it'll be perfect...one day
