About this Project

While a fundamental routine is absolutely essential to achieve success as a musician, it can be easy to fall into the habit of playing the same exercises every day. There is certainly nothing wrong with a regular routine; however, sometimes you just want to play something new.

With that in mind, I created a Fundamentals Friday series where I regularly launch exercises meant to get you out of a practice rut. You'll find new ways to practice lip slurs, challenging articulation studies, and etudes highlighting music from composers of a diverse background. Most exercises will be accompanied with an unashamedly cheesy backing track to train your ear, work on time, and perhaps even make warming up a bit more fun!
