NPP Warm-Up

The Non-Pro Player Committee initiated warm-up sessions at the 2015 ITG Conference specifically for Non-Pro/Comeback Player to assist in the art of warming up.

Previous Non-Pro Player Warm-Up Sessions:

2022 ITG Conference  – Ryan Gardner - Daily Starters / Exercises

Ryan Gardner’s morning warm-up session with the non-pro player community was well attended and brought a fresh perspective to fundamentals. Participants were introduced to stretches and breathing exercises, as well as mouthpiece and slurring exercises from the teachings of Boyde Hood. Attendees were guided toward finding their easiest, most beautiful tone, and the collective trumpet sound was impressive as the session progressed. The warmup also introduced improvisation as a part of a daily fundamental routine and provided new ideas on how to make fundamentals transferable to other areas of playing. (Julia Bell)
