If I were a blackbird I would sing with as many colors as possible. This is a simple melody. Adding the key clicks is a good coordination exercise. It should sound like two flutes are playing. Let the melody sing and make the key clicks very rhythmic.

Unfortunately I can’t dance. This song makes me feel like I can. It’s hard to sit still and just play this exercise. I suggest you don’t fight it and go with the flow. The key clicks in this exercise help you improve the finger movement, the wind sounds make the embouchure flexible and to activate the abdomen I added tongue stops to the exercise.
Practicing long notes is a good way to warm up. Adding flutter tongue to the note improves your support. This song is also perfect for practicing this multiphonic. What a wonderful feeling when you let those two notes sound at the same time.
This overture is in typical French style. Picture a king entering the room at the opening of the piece and in the second part the dancers appear. All very graceful and now with a small Flute Colors wink.
Studies are designed to teach something. You can learn even more by adding extended techniques. Fluttertongue stimulates support to improve your sound and key clicks and pizzicato help you make more precise finger movements in combination with support.
Keep the spirits up with this happy song. I feel good! The famous motive can be played easily with tone bending. The funny sound of the tongue stops will add even more fun to it. A little rest with the key clicks and the harmonics help you to increase the support. You will feel good after playing this warming up exercise.
