This piece is inspired by the poem ‘Together’ by Rupi Kaur. The poem is about the irony of us all feeling lonely at the same time. The piece tries to capture those feelings of isolation that we all feel, knowing
that each person who listens to this understands those feelings too. Sometimes knowing just knowing other people have those feelings too is enough.
Ghost harmonics are great fun for practicing support and a relaxed embouchure. Enjoy the bamboo-like sound while studying step 2. Try playing step 3 with relaxed embouchure as practiced in step 2. Start with the exercise.
This famous passage by Richard Strauß is perfect for practicing harmonics. Variation I focuses on one set of harmonics. Perfect for practicing support. Variation II is more difficult because almost every note must be played as harmonic. Practice in all three keys for the best result.
This catchy song was used in one of the Shrek movies and became very famous.

Also a nice exercise if you are not interested in learning circular breathing.
