Building Blocks for Tone Technique Done with your beginning book? Not quite ready for advanced books? Here’s your answer! The book is divided into five sections … Daily 6-Minute Warm-Up Mouthpiece buzzing, tone and slide positions, lip slurs, rhythmic articulation Part One: Lip Slurs (20 Progressive Exercises) This sequence helps students progress smoothly from easy slurs to more advanced material. Part Two: Pattern-Building (40 Exercises) This section not only gives practice with scales but also builds a basic understanding of fundamental concepts such as whole steps and half steps. Many exercises present the same patterns in both familiar and foreign keys. Part Three: Lyrical Legato (40 Etudes, duet parts available) These little etudes help students develop a smooth, singing style. Extra exercises go into detail concerning the use of the legato tongue and natural slurs. Part Four: Varied Articulation (40 Etudes, duet parts available) These provide practice with some details of articulation including accents, tenuto, staccato, and mixing in legato tonguing as well as natural slurs. Part Five: Simple Tunes in Multiple Keys (20 Tunes, each in two keys, duet parts available) These enjoyable little melodies presented in different keys help students develop ‘key sense,’ that ability to think beyond simple slide positions to an understanding of how to transpose interval content into a foreign key.
