Warm-Up Routine Based on Solo Works for Horn

As mentioned in this post, I think my Solo Training for Horn book can be used as a source of effective warm-up and daily practice routine materials. See the link below for a free sample routine drawn from a small portion of the contents in Solo Training. The exercises are based (some closely, some more loosely) on the following works:

  • Sonata, Op. 17 – Ludwig van Beethoven
  • Concerto No. 1, Hob. VIId:3 – Franz Joseph Haydn
  • Concerto, K. 495 – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Morceau de Concert – Camille Saint-Saëns
  • Adagio and Allegro, Op. 70 – Robert Schumann

This brief packet addresses the traditional topics you would find in most warm-ups:

  • First notes
  • Legato/Staccato Playing
  • Scales/Arpeggios
  • High Range/Low Range
  • Lip Trills/Flexibility
  • Stopped Horn

But the bonus is that all of the exercises can be clearly related back to major solo works in the horn’s repertoire. If you’re looking for an alternative warm-up routine to add to your toolbox, feel free to download the PDF, and let me know what you think in the comments or an email.

AND, if you find this material interesting and/or useful, please do check out the entire book, available on the Mountain Peak Music website. It contains much more material than this 15-page sample, as the entire book is over 100 pages.
