The Trumpet Professor's Tips and suggestions

Warm Water Warmup

Do you feel sluggish at the beginning of your warm-up? Try this... warm up your instrument before you start to play. Just pour warm water through your trumpet before starting the warm-up. Put the water down the bell of your instrument....the water needs to be warm but not hot....hot water will take the lacquer off of a lacquered trumpet so again, use warm water but not hot water. Give this a try for a week and then evaluate this simple technique. Many pros and students alike have found this helpful. Give it a try and see if it works for you.
