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.
Practise your exercises with a little beat. Play along with the song ‘Coming Home’ by Sheppard and get ready for your flute studies. The tone bending and harmonics help you find and improve your sound. The key clicks help to wake up your fingers and the pizzicato helps your tongue to be precise in articulation. And now 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 minuet by mr. Duport was used by Mozart to make variations. Now we can use this theme to practise harmonics. Playing the melody the Flute Colors way will help you to improve your aural skills, support and sound. You can also play together with the piano. Have fun!
Three variations on a staccato study by Giuseppe Gariboldi. The first variation helps you to increase the support, the second variation helps you to develop a precise finger movement and the third variation helps you to increase the co-ordination between the tongue and abdomen. Three steps to get more results and a better staccato playing.
Nothing is what it seems in this Flute Colors arrangement. The harmonics are notated with two notes. The diamond shaped notes indicate the fingering one should use and the high note is the note that should sound. Very useful to work on your aural skills, support and working with vowels. You can play with or without accompaniment.
