Key clicks can be very strict. If the movement of your fingers isn’t really precise and well coordinated with your tongue and abdomen it will show immediately. Therefore a nice and effective exercise for a good and steady fingermovement.
Another energetic exercise to start your studies well. The tone bending in this piece challenges you to work on intonation. The pizzicato and tongue stops make your tongue stronger and increases the co-ordination between tongue, fingers and abdomen. And the harmonics will help you get a better sound.
Quartertones are fascinating. The fingerings often produce a different kind of sound. The intonation should be precise. Sometimes you have to help the note a little bit by bending the note down. Start with the exercise to get used tot he fingerings and to get the intonation right.

The arrangement of this Italian Song has 3 variations (and 3 levels). The key clicks in the first variation stimulate a precise finger movement. In the second variation the harmonics will activate the abdomen for a better sound. Because of the combination of key clicks with sound, the third version is more challenging. If your finger movement is not precise, it will show in this variation.
