Habits of a Successful Wind Ensemble

  • thumbnail for Scott Rush
  • This clinic will focus on the important role of transferring the components of playing used during fundamentals time to the artistic performance of great literature. A comprehensive daily warm-up emphasizing ensemble resonance, timing, tuning, tone, technique and singing are the cornerstones of this approach. The consistent use of scales, technique exercises, chorales and a step-by-step mastery of sight-reading skills leads to the ability to read and perform with musical clarity.
