A Long Tone Warming Up in Half Steps

Charles Regier • Playing Tips • September 15, 2015

For a well-rounded tone quality, I am convinced you need to warm-up the band always using long tones from B flat concert and play half steps down to low F concert and back up using half steps. It results in better tone and better tuning. It’s simple, but it works over a period of time.
