ASTA NATIONAL CONFERENCE 2021
21st Century Warm-Ups | Saturday, March 5th
We all know scales are a great tool for warming-up our bodies and training our hands. But, despite our best intentions, the repetition of traditional scales isn’t fun, interesting, or even relevant to most students’ musical lives. The point of playing scales should not be to just play more scales! In this session, we'll explore tried-and-true improvisation exercises – all rooted in basic scale knowledge – that can serve as engaging and enriching warm-ups for orchestras and individuals. Bring your instrument!
