This warming up is all about coordination. Harmonics are great for improving support and sound. The key clicks have different rhythms in the left hand and right hand. Therefore fantastic as a coordination exercise. Same goes for the singing and playing part.

A German flute teacher and her students asked me to write an exercise on the song ‘In My Mind’ by Dynoro & Gigi D’Agostino so I did. The great thing about this exercise is that you can combine the parts and make it sound like a real flute orchestra.
Warming up with this popsong can be a great start of your daily flute practise. The tone bending exercises will make your embouchure flexible. It will also wake up your ears because of the intonation. The pizzicato and tongue stops are great to wake up your fingers and support. The flutter tongue in letter F is useful for developing sound and relaxing the tongue.
Practise your exercises with a little beat. Play along with the song ‘Coming Home’ by Sheppard and get ready for your flute studies.

The first Christmas arrangement of 2018. A nice energetic song to practise key clicks and wind sounds. By starting long notes with regular sound and gradually go to wind sound your not only practising flexibility of the embouchure but also the technique we need to play diminuendo. Have fun!
Practise your harmonics together with the Scissor Sisters. Harmonics are very useful to practise support, using vocals, aural skills, sound and embouchure. Playing this exercise with the Youtube version of I don’t feel like dancing makes it a nice warming up exercise too!
This piece is a good way to start a workshop or lesson. A nice and effective energizer. Work on key clicks for the co-ordination of the fingers, wind sound for a flexible embouchure and tone bending for sound and flexibility. Or just for fun!
Playalong with Youtube. Very nice to use as a warming up exercise and energizer for workshops or just to start your daily routine. The wind sounds and tone bending challenge the embouchure to become really flexible and the key clicks are nice for rhythm and a precise finger movement.
