Articulation

Remember the tongue is a muscle, so it will become stronger and faster with this work out. These points should be your focus:

  1. Line up with the metronome
  2. No breaks in tone while articulating
  3. Quality (the approach of tip of tongue to tip of reed will produce the desired results- click here for review)

Scales

This is a chance to see if you can play a few scales without error. Here’s the pattern to follow:

  1. If you know the scale well, play 5 times a day with the metronome
  2. If you still have a difficult time playing this scale, then repeat the scale 5-10 times  a day with a metronome
