I have to jump on this to ask some questions. Though I LOVE the concept of setting excitement and the mood for he rehearsal.

1) What warm-up methods specifically do you sue with your orchestras? From a band stand up long tones, slurs, and chorales wouldn’t transfer so well into an orchestra.
2) How do you tune the orchestra? Do you use personal tuners like a snark, or some other method?
3) How would you recommend increasing our own personal playing ability to adequately demonstrate on a string instrument for them? I am only a beginner on orchestral strings, but classically trained on guitar.

Thanks for any information and help!
