Most published warm-ups for trumpet involve getting the lips to vibrate freely. But there are really three items that need “warming up.” They are:
1. The Lips
2. The Tongue
3. The Fingers
Each of the progressive warm-ups in this book will address all three items, setting the stage for either performance or practice.
In addition to warming up the Lips, Tongue, and Fingers, it is of utmost impor- tance to get set mentally for whatever you will face for the day. Always keep in mind what you are trying to accomplish. Focus on the essentials, as aimless blowing will get you nowhere!
