For me singing and playing feels magical. Singing and playing two different things at the same time is so much fun. Start with the first variation (first level). Get more challenged with the second variation (medium level) and third variation (difficult). Never a dull moment with this piece!
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.
Practise your skills with friends. Tone bending in the first part is a very good ear training. The wind sounds in the second and third part are useful for a flexible embouchure and a flexible embouchure is very useful for… everything! The tongue stops in the fourth part activate the abdomen and improve the coordinaton between abdomen and the movement of the tongue. Have fun with this piece and play softly so the baby can sleep 😉
Happy birthday to you the Flute Colors way! This is the second Flute Colors arrangement of this popular song. Now you can play it with three other flute players. You can combine this arrangement with arrangement number 026.
Tone bending helps you to improve your aural skills. This arrangement challenges you to bend the notes down a semi tone. That is very helpful to increase your flexibility. This piece even is more fun if you play it as a duet. Try to make it sound as one flute.
Practising key clicks with sound can help you develop a perfect co-ordination between the fingers and the movement of the tongue (articulation). Quite challenging! Practising flutter tunge is useful for relaxing the tongue. This Flute Colors arrangement sounds great with three flutes!
