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.
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!
I had a lot of fun testing this piece with different groups. This piece feels like playing a game. Two to four players play one melody and make it sound like one player is playing the melody. A great challenge and a lot of fun. Adding extended techniques like tongue stops, wind sounds, flutter tongue and key clicks makes it complete. If there is one player who can play the altopart or bass part it makes it even more challenging. Good luck!
Practise extended techniques with friends. This arrangement of Schubert’s Rosamunde can be played with flute choir (4 C-flutes, alto flute and bass). You can work on wind sounds, singing & playing, tongue stops and jet whistle. A good workout for activating the abdomen, flexible embouchure and a lot more.
This arrangement can be played as a trio or as a duet! You can sing part two and three and play or combine them. Part one focusses on pizzicato playing. Very useful for increasing co-ordination between the tongue and abdomen. You can play with or without accompaniment.
Color your scales with extended techniques. Adding singing and playing to your scale study is very useful for working on sound, improving your aural skills, stimulating abdominal support and becoming aware of tension in your throat. You can play along with the accompaniment in 12 keys.
