  • The importance of a good warm up

    Tuba Teacher (Cardiff) Picture Last night I was at a rehearsal and I witnessed someone do everything you should not do in a warm up.

This is an idea that has been passed on by all of my teachers and which I believe has the greatest impact on any musician's development. A warm-up of 30 minutes each day to me is...
