Are you ready for your tone to improve yet again?

I hope so!

**Also, I make a verbal error in this module.  Can you catch it?

I mention keeping your right hand first finger up for 2D.  Oooops!  I meant LEFT Hand!!

Don’t let me steer you wrong.

  1. Hey Arlene, it’s okay- sounds like you’re learning well from the lessons. You can get that tone hole smaller while keeping the inside of your mouth bigger – that’ll help you sound so great! Keep it up. ~Rebecca

  2. Wow! That is challenging and fun at the same time. Thanks for the tone video, I could really work on keeping my hole smaller. I’m sorry that I haven’t played for you yet, I’m not very computer savvy and I’m not aloud on the internet so I’ll need my mom to help me but, I’ll try to get on it.

  3. Jo, this is a very good strategy! Perfect! I even show you how to ‘double’ your measures in the future to make it easier to count and learn to play faster. You’re just right on target. Nice ~Rebecca

  4. This is the strategy I’ve been using when doing Skips and Quicks: I’ve been setting my metronome at 8 beats per measure so I can give each and every note the length they should get. I started very slowly (108) and I’m working my way to faster time as I get used to the fingerings. I’ll change to 2 beats per measure as I speed up so I also get used to counting correctly. Do you think this is a good strategy or am I setting myself up for disaster?
    Thanks Rebecca!!!

    Good job, Brian! These finger patterns are definitely something to think about. I’m proud of you. It’s been so much fun watching you progress right from the very beginning. 🙂 Rebecca

  6. Hi Rebecca,
    I love doing all these scales. I try to slur them all in one breath and the “skips and quicks” is good practice. I sent you Aunt Rhody…played musically ( I hope ) and also have some questions about the Hymn vs Irish mini-course. Did you get any of it ? Let me know what you think…

  7. The mac is definitely a cool outfit. I also use Mac computers, but we have a PC in the kitchen if needed. In this Gold Level the scales pdf’s come along at just the right time. For your reference: A= 3 sharps, D= 2 sharps, G= 1 sharp. You’ll get them all soon enough. 🙂

  8. Hi Rebecca – can you please give us Skips and Quicks PDF files of the A major, F, D and G scales. I initially thought that by changing the key signature at the beginning of the music that was all that was needed, but I noticed that the notes are transposed by one from the C to Bb scales, so I’m not sure what the position of the notes should be on the stave for these other scales. If I had a blank music manuscript sheet I could have a go at it! Is there one handy somewhere on my Apple store or iTunes applications? ( I have just realized – after 3 months!! – that your students are using Photo Booth to make videos – I’m a slow learner with this techie stuff! Even tho” my iMac is magical!!) Martin

  9. Hey Jim, good job. I think we can do more work here with your tone. Yaaawn when you breathe so you keep a nice space in your throat, and also let’s let your tongue pop better*** (make sure it seals off first and then pops back). Your tone will improve. And it’ll be even more fun to play the flute!! 🙂 Rebecca ~ LearnFluteOnline

  10. I Love this scale, don’t you? **You’ll need to rework this one to be sure and lift your first finger on the second octave D on the way down*** Keep it up! Rebecca ~

  11. This is a great module in that I have been worried about my tone for a long time. Also playing scales everyday is good for me as I stumble from time to time when shifting keys (scales). Learning a new scale is always fun, and the skips and quicks is a good challenge for me at this point in my evolutionary flute age. Thank you Rebecca for your excellent tutelage.

  12. RebeccaFuller

    Yes, Elizabeth – the tip is to be sure your fingers are nice and slightly curved. The rest of it takes slow practice that eventually speeds up more and more. You can do it. I know you can. ~ Rebecca

    Hi, I’ve spent a long time on module 41 and am pleased to say it’s getting easier, except from the tone study
    G# to A I just can’t do it without a blurp in the middle. I know my pinkie and ring fingers are not coming off together, but I have tried so many times and I just can’t get them to do what I want them to. Any tips please to get this to work.

  14. Thanks for posting Amy. You’ve definitely been busy. How slow can you do this? (chromatic moving upwards) You’ll find improvement when you push yourself to play this verrry slowly. 🙂 Rebecca LearnFluteOnline

  15. Wow, you’ve been busy Amy. Thanks for posting!!! We love seeing progress. 🙂 Rebecca

    Ooh, so much good stuff in this module! I can’t believe we’ve learned so many scales already! I am attaching videos for my scales, my skips and quicks, and my tone study. I played the tone study several times and noticed that every time I played it, my tone sounded a little bit better each time. I will definitely continue doing this tone study as part of my warmup. I think it will really help me clear up my tone! The skips and quicks were also quite challenging and fun to play. I did notice that sometimes my right index finger did not want to lift back off the flute after playing a Bb and going to other notes (such as A). It didn’t seem to affect the sound at all, but I figured that I should be cognizant of that and try not fall into bad habits.

  17. What a great question Marcy has here. I hope everyone reads this: Even if you can’t hear the difference at this stage, please DO have your first finger UP on 2nd octave E flat. I know it will feel easier to leave it down, but it really does need to be up. You’ll run into octave-jumping problems in the future if you don’t have this habit now. Okay? Okay. Awesome, awesome question. Thanks!

  18. I don’t notice much, if any, difference in tone when I leave my first finger on for E flat and the Cleartune tuner also shows the same sound. in fact, to me it sounds better with the first finger on than off and makes fingering easier. Will this change as my tone and musicality improves?
