FAQs
Who is this appropriate for?
These warmups are great for college students, woodwind doublers, adult amateurs, and professionals.

What can I expect from this class?
I will give instructions and then set a timer for all of us to play on our own. Then, I'll bring us back together and explain the next part of the warmup. The last 10-15 minutes of class will be open to questions.

Do I have to go to all of them?
No, you are welcome to come to one, multiple, or all of them! This is meant to be a resource to give you new ideas or help you back into playing if it has been hard to play because of a long break, COVID-19, burnout, or any other reason.

Will anyone hear me play?
No, after I share the exercise, I will have everyone mute their sound and we will warm up in the privacy of our rooms. When the time for an exercise is up, I will bring everyone back together.

What should I wear?
Come in whatever comfortable for you in the morning. I might wear a robe, comfy hoody, workout pants, or fleece pajamas. It depends on the day.

Can I actually come to class completely cold?
Yes, I encourage it! It's a casual judgment-free space for you to have a guided warmup.
