This catchy song will help you warm up in no time! The tone bending and wind sounds make your embouchure flexible, The harmonics help you to improve the intonation and the ‘cha’ will activate your abdomen. After this warming up you’re ready to go.
A German flute teacher and her students asked me to write an exercise on the song ‘In My Mind’ by Dynoro & Gigi D’Agostino so I did. The great thing about this exercise is that you can combine the parts and make it sound like a real flute orchestra.
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 your skills with friends. Tone bending in the first part is a very good ear training. The wind sounds in the second and third part are useful for a flexible embouchure and a flexible embouchure is very useful for… everything! The tongue stops in the fourth part activate the abdomen and improve the coordinaton between abdomen and the movement of the tongue. Have fun with this piece and play softly so the baby can sleep 😉
