Lakeland, Florida (January 2, 2023)
Excelcia Music Publishing is thrilled to announce the release of The Complete Warm-Up for Band, A Modular Approach to Fundamental Development, written by prominent composers, clinicians and music educators, Carol Brittin Chambers and Tyler Arcari. A new everyday book to be used in Middle School and High School band classes of any length, The Complete Warm-Up for Band provides well-rounded fundamental warm-ups that can be used by ensembles in short increments or in longer, more intensive rehearsals. Using a modular structure, The Complete Warm-Up for Band offers flexible options and a thorough approach, regardless of class length, to develop tone, technique and musicianship for the concert band.
Written by veteran music educators and composers Carol Brittin Chambers and Tyler Arcari, The Complete Warm-Up for Band is structured using six modules: Body, Tone, Scale, Technical, Rhythmic and Ensemble Modules. On the spot, Band Directors can pick one or more exercises in each of the modules to lead their ensembles in a comprehensive warm-up designed by educators who have been exactly in their shoes. Whether the Director has 5 minutes or 25 minutes, each warm-up will include thoughtful exercises in breathing, stretching, long tones, scales, technical etudes and rhythmic studies, plus 40 chorales for use in ensemble development.
“As a music educator, I have always strongly believed in establishing fundamental concepts that can transfer easily from the warm-up to the music. The Complete Warm-Up for Band is just that…complete! Directors can start as simply as they like, with their younger, less-advanced ensembles, then progressively add on exercises as their groups mature. The extensive content means the book will never be outgrown!,” states Carol Brittin Chambers, Co-Author. “And Tyler’s experience and perspectives made him the perfect partner in creating this book.”
“It has become clear to me how much ensembles benefit from more intentional, structured warm-ups. I firmly believe that the roadmap for success resides in this book,” explains Tyler Arcari, Co-Author and Director of Music Production and Editing. “Developing this project with Carol has been a dream come true, and I know that directors will find everything they need to improve the technical proficiency and musicianship of their students.”
Award-winning composer Carol Brittin Chambers is one of the most-often played composers and arrangers in the country and a sought-after clinician. Currently on the faculty of Texas Lutheran University, Chambers previously taught middle school and high school band and private lessons for many years. Tyler Arcari is a popular composer, arranger, author and clinician, whose music is played around the world. Arcari also taught band at both the middle school and high school levels. Arcari serves as the Director of Music Production and Editing at the publisher.
The Complete Warm-Up for Band is available from music retailers everywhere and from the publisher at $8.99 per student book and $39.99 for teacher edition.
