At last, an organized regimen of Reinhardt routines presented in a manner that builds every aspect of your playing: range, endurance, sound, advanced slide techniques, shakes, breathing, articulation, key fluency, tonguing, slurring, multiple tonguing, consistency . . . it’s all here.
For years people have been asking for a collection of Reinhardt routines that would work without the benefit of studying with Reinhardt. Most dedicated Reinhardt students know that’s a tall order, because you can’t just turn a player loose with many of the Reinhardt routines — every routine had a specific purpose and was assigned at a specific time. Reinhardt knew there was no “one size fits all” way of teaching brass players.
But thanks to Dave Sheetz and Rich Willey, a set of routines has been laid out, about half of which are based on his never-before-published revisions to his Manual of Studies. These comprise a rotating Eleven Day plan followed by a series of Supplemental Routines (including Reinhardt’s now-famous Warm Up #57), all of which players will benefit from simply by reading the instructions and playing the drills accordingly.
The Reinhardt Routines—a total embouchure development plan has what it takes to develop that embouchure you’ve been dreaming of. It’s all laid out for you right here, at last.
