This piece is a good way to start a workshop or lesson. A nice and effective energizer. Work on key clicks for the co-ordination of the fingers, wind sound for a flexible embouchure and tone bending for sound and flexibility. Or just for fun!
A Flute Colors arrangement of the Irish traditional in two versions! One for 4 C-flutes and one for 2 C-flutes, alto flute and bass flute. Have fun with tone bending, wind sounds, pizzicato and jetwhistles. A nice addition if you want to play with more colors, work on your sound, support and co-ordination of tongue and abdomen.
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. Good luck!
Add some extra colors to this song. Even if you just started to play the flute you can play this piece with friends. The tongue stops, pizzicato and jet whistle help you to develop the co-ordination between the tongue and abdomen. The wind sounds make your embouchure very flexible and that way you can improve your sound.
Playalong with Youtube. Very nice to use as a warming up exercise and energizer for workshops or just to start your daily routine. The wind sounds and tone bending challenge the embouchure to become really flexible and the key clicks are nice for rhythm and a precise finger movement.
Get your flute, find three flute friends and play this cheerful piece the Flute Colors way. Every line has its own challenges. So there are a lot of things you can develop with this piece. You can play with or without accompaniment.
In this arrangement we use the wind sounds to practise decrescendi. Playing from regular sound to wind sound gradually is a true workout for practising the decrescendo movement of the embouchure. Once you practise your decrescendi like this, the regular ones will be very easy!
Once you start singing this round the energy level increases and you can’t stop singing it. And now you can play it as well the Flute Colors way! The wind sounds make your embouchure very flexible, singing and playing is very good for a lot of things and practising flutter tongue helps you to relax your tongue.
