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.
A Flute Colors variation on the very famous piece by Edvard Grieg. If you don’t have an alto and bass flute you can also play the version with flute and piano. Try to make the sound of the pizzicato very ‘dry’ and very precise together and you will sound like a string quartet playing pizzicato.
In this arrangement of the minuet from the toy symphony the toys are replaced by extended techniques. It can be played as a trio, quartet or even with a flute choir. Make sure we can here the extended techniques!
Warming up with this popsong can be a great start of your daily flute practise. The tone bending exercises will make your embouchure flexible. It will also wake up your ears because of the intonation. The pizzicato and tongue stops are great to wake up your fingers and support. The flutter tongue in letter F is useful for developing sound and relaxing the tongue.
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 exercises with a little beat. Play along with the song ‘Coming Home’ by Sheppard and get ready for your flute studies. The tone bending and harmonics help you find and improve your sound. The key clicks help to wake up your fingers and the pizzicato helps your tongue to be precise in articulation. And now have fun!
