Band Warm Ups Program

What’s in It?

In this collection you’ll find 30 band warmups, divided into four sections:

Chapter 1 – Band Sandbox (warm ups for beginner band)

Getting the beginner band sounding good is one of the first main challenges. Participants in the band should feel motivated and happy to be there. They need to enjoy what they are doing, right away.

That is why we’ve provided these four beginning band warm ups in this section. They are all written within the range of a fifth. They are able to be played by students who have had just a few lessons on their instrument. Fun and engaging titles like Chord Monster and Rhythm Rockets will have them enjoying band in no time!

Listen to example (#2 Chord Monster):

Chapter 2 – Lungs and Ears of Steel (breathing & ear training band warm ups)

Developing breathing control and developing aural skills is important for all the wind players. We have captured some of the most important skills in this area with these band warmups. Band members will develop their ears through singing. The percussion section isn’t forgotten either!

Chapter 3 – Italian Fishmarket (scale and arpeggio band warm ups)

For any instrument it is important to master scales and arpeggios. This collection contains the essential scale and arpeggio band warmups. This is where the backing tracks will come in very handy. Directors can send students home with the track to play along with, and keep in time!

Chapter 4 – Pulse Checkers (rhythm and pulse control band warm ups)

Playing in time is vital to develop in any band. These band warm ups contains eight ‘Rhythm Riddles” and a “Pulse Pocket” activity. The rhythm riddles gradually increase in difficulty. The idea is to develop the bands internal pulse, and encourage them to listen to each other.
