Re: Making your own warm ups
I absolutely agree that warm ups CAN take too long and bands get really good at their warm up but arenít prepared on their stage music. Early in the year our warm ups are longer (10-13 minutes out of 50). By December or warm up at Coppell North is between 4-6 minutes. Kids have dedicated instrument specific warm ups they do prior to ensemble warm up. What ever you do for a warm up, INSIST ON PERFECTION on a smaller amount of material rather than average to good performance on a large body of warm up materials.
