'Five-Minute Warm-up'

October 3, 2017, 7:42 AM · This video blog offers an example of a "5 Minute Warm-up" for when the time is very short or as an over-all warm-up before focusing on specific technical areas and repertoire.

In covering the entire range of the fingerboard, challenges and difficulties in the repertoire are easily met.

It is my hope this will encourage you to expand your own system of warm-up that will broaden the scope of your present pattern.

Directed toward the advanced and professional player — there will be a follow-up example in the first 4 positions.
