Lew Soloff Warm Up


This is a trumpeter's warm-up as shown to me by Lew Soloff. Its origins are from Ryan Kisor and the Schlossberg Method.
This warm-up takes the artist through the overtone series and using alternate fingers; e.g. Use 1-2-3 for low C#, middle F#, C# and high F#.
Play at a soft and relaxed volume concentrating on a steady and full stream of "wind" allowing the notes to ride the wave.
Keep throat open and minimize any head or jaw movement. Think: focused, steady and relaxed.
