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.

Harmonics are good for practicing support and flexibility. That’s why your sound gets bigger. Practice this song first with the regular notes, then with the harmonics, and the third time with the regular notes again. Compare the first and third time and notice the difference in sound.
Small trills are needed in this piece. In this arrangement, the trills are replaced by bisbigliando trills. Nice colorful trills in one tone. When playing in a flute ensemble, the bass (alto) part must be played and sung to get the characteristic fifths in the bass.
Theobald Böhm, inventor of our modern flute, has also written several studies and pieces for flute. In this study articulation is important. By adding pizzicato to the piece, you can practice articulation and coordination between the tongue and the abdomen.
Singing and playing can give this wonderful feeling of freedom. Especially if you have to sing and play different melodies at the same time. It is also very good to get a better sound and train your aural skills.
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.
