The session today is based around some of my favorites, Clarke, Schlossberg and others. This is a “primary session” so it is based around the nuts and bolts of playing.
Some breathing, your choice, I also threw in some constructive rest (Alexander technique) today.
Clarke 3 - Play each one twice, once slurred, once tongued. Aim for keeping these as soft as possible.
Schlossberg - No. 13 Quarter = 40 try to not telegraph which way the slur is about to go.
Schlossberg - No. 20 Half = 60 Legato tongue
Schlossberg - No. 64 Quarter = 60 mf only, Final note down two octaves (harm 2)
Schlossberg no.62 - First two lines, as fast as you can do them clean. All lip slurs, as written and down the octave. Once slurred, once tongued.
Schlossberg no.59 - As written, fast as clean. One time slurred, one time tongued.
Brass gym - Lip flips. Major third, Perfect fourth low, octave (on 1 side of the horn only), perfect 5th low.
Flutter tongue scales in the low range. (can’t flutter?)
That is it.
