Abstract

School ensemble rehearsals in Australia are usually heavily constrained; held once a week, time is precious. How should the “warm-up” differ in the time-poor Australian context? This study applied two different warm-up methodologies, and no warm-up at all, across three similar groups. The effectiveness of each approach was compared using audio recordings as measured by recognised experts in the field. Unexpectedly, the band with no warm-up made the biggest progress, though evidence that warm-ups have a significant effect was also found. This research concluded that there is a need for further study in this area, preferably of a longer-term nature.
