Warm up routines in the BSO

Trumpet player in the Boston Symphony, Michael Martin created a short video demonstrating the best ways to warm up on the brass instruments. With the collaborations of his colleagues from BSO, Mike presents several extremely (for real) efficient ways to pre-concert warm ups. This video was produced as a promo for the National Brass Symposium, an event created by Mike and  his brother Chris Martin, from the Chicago Symphony, featuring some of the most renowned players in the world.
It is my hope that, especially young students will quickly start incorporating these techniques in their daily routines :)) Enjoy and learn !!


  1. I remember this video! Very clever.

  2. Might be the most important video I've ever seen in my life.

  3. I think the best part of this video is that it shows how professionals still have such a great time playing their horns and just acting like idiots sometimes!
