Opinions differ as to how to best start rehearsals.
One leading educator thinks we should strike “warm up” from our vocabularies. Another thinks we should do away with tuning up our ensembles at the beginning of rehearsals.
Most of us can agree, however, that students benefit from a mental transition from outside life to rehearsal life, and that this can be a great time to prepare them for the content they will work on later in rehearsal.
We’ve compiled advice from successful band, orchestra, choir and jazz ensemble directors into a free ebook. Our goal is to inspire you to begin your rehearsals with new ideas, to engage your students, and to make your time together more productive.
