This cheerful Christmas song is even more fun with pitch bending. Try to lower the A until you hear the G sharp. A very good exercise for flexibility and intonation.

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.
Tone bending can be used for auditory training and flexibility. In this piece by Beethoven, the first flute in particular has to do all the bending of the tones. You can play this piece with two flutes or add an extra challenge by playing with two flutes and piano.
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.
Another energetic exercise to start your studies well. The tone bending in this piece challenges you to work on intonation. The pizzicato and tongue stops make your tongue stronger and increases the co-ordination between tongue, fingers and abdomen. And the harmonics will help you get a better sound.
This warming up will help you start you studies with a smile. Can’t stop the feeling and can’t stop playing. The techniques used in this exercise are good for everything: articulation, sound, coordination, dynamics, support en technique.
