    Good question. It seems to depend on the musician – some like to do long easy bows with scales, or different types of articulation exercises, dividing up the bow into different segments, etc. I wonder if it might help to supplement on-instrument warmup with an actual physical warmup away from the instrument? Whether some yoga flows, or something that gets the blood flowing more generally in your body, so that your body is more physically warm before you begin your instrumental warmup?

There's an LIVE component too! (for educators)

If you’d like to explore some of the most essential skills and techniques in the course live, with a cohort of curious, thoughtful, supportive, and like-minded educators (and a few mildly irreverent or benevolently sarcastic folks mixed in to make sure we don’t get too serious), that’s also an option!

Starting Thursday, February 3rd, we’ll meet via Zoom once a week, and go through selected strategies related to effective practice, managing nerves, and achieving flow states under pressure. We’ll do some in-class playing experiments (don’t worry – you’ll be muted!), short weekly homework assignments, and small-group breakout sessions to help you integrate these new skills into your teaching.

This 6-week live course is normally $199, but is available at 50% off the regular cost when bundled with Beyond Practicing. For more details about the live course (and dates) CLICK HERE.
