After a 22 month lay off due to the pandemic restrictions, ensembles are opening up again. Before rehearsal a couple weeks ago, I was playing a few BE Roll-Out exercises to loosen up my chops. One of the horn players, a former BE student, in the band commented, "Hearing you practice your BE exercises makes me want to do them again." I responded with "You should be practicing your BE exercises regularly ... even it if it's only once a week."
The following week at rehearsal, he exclaimed with a big smile on his face, "I've been practicing Roll-Out all week. Like you've always said, Roll-Out isn't just to develop the low register. Roll-Out helps everything. Everything is better!"
