Warming up with your favorite popsong. Tone bending exercises make you aware of the flute angle and support. The harmonics will help you increase the support and the exercise with inflating and deflating the cheeks makes your embouchure flexible and is one of the steps to circular breathing.
This warming up is all about coordination. Harmonics are great for improving support and sound. The key clicks have different rhythms in the left hand and right hand. Therefore fantastic as a coordination exercise. Same goes for the singing and playing part.
Playing two melodies as one player is a technique often used in Baroque music. Key clicks are perfect tools to practice technique. The regular notes are the melody and the key clicks the accompaniment. Your finger movement has to be very precise otherwise the key clicks will tell you.
I like to think Johann Strauß liked a joke every now and then according to some pieces he wrote. So I think he would have liked this arrangement of his famous waltz. You can play it with one or two flutes and piano. Have fun!
For me singing and playing feels magical. Singing and playing two different things at the same time is so much fun. Start with the first variation (first level). Get more challenged with the second variation (medium level) and third variation (difficult). Never a dull moment with this piece!
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.
