Daily Schedule 2019

8:00 Morning Session:

Stretch,

Breathing Gym, & Brass Gym

 

"The Brass Gym" contains a daily basics routine developed from a synthesis of our experiences from more than 50 combined years of touring as performers and educators throughout the world. The workout consists of exercises that cover comprehensively the basic aspects of wind playing. It can also be used as a warm-up activity as the exercises are ordered in a gentle "ramp up" with demand increasing throughout the workout.

-Play Without Tension

-Play With Smooth Air
-Play In The Pedal Register
-Balance Rest with Playing
