What others are saying about Well-Tempered Warm-ups...

"What an amazing difference in the sound of our adult orchestra since we began using Well-Tempered Warm-ups. The intonation of the group has practically fallen into place! Our senior high orchestra has vastly improved their sight-reading and scale knowledge, too. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to you and your group." — J.G., Tennessee
 

"My reason for writing is to thank you for the warm-up collections that you have so wonderfully prepared.... Our orchestra numbers 25, and that's on a good day, but learning how to play and tune together has been one of their biggest hurdles. Within two weeks of practice with your warm-ups, their sight-reading began to improve and also their ability to listen and blend as they played together." — G.D., Texas

"We use David Winkler's warm-up book every week with our Sanctuary Orchestra. I highly recommend it, and would consider it to be an essential part of every church's instrumental library!" — T.M., Tennessee

5-Note Tunes — songs which can be played using the numbers of the scale tones.  Useful for individual players or with a group of players.  Note that this is a FREE resource. Downloadable PDF file.
