2014 Texas All-State Warm-Ups Now Available

They’re here! I’ve been working on creating a set of warm-ups for this All-State music, and thought I’d share them with those interested in signing up for my new website: The Flute Stop.

I’m in the process of transitioning this website over to the new one (not sure when the merge will be complete since teaching and mommy-hood keep me pretty busy). My hope is to provide more articles, tips, and tools to aid flutists everywhere.

To get your free copy, click on the link below (or the book cover) and go to the new site and sign up for the free newsletter. Don’t worry, your info is all confidential and I won’t send you a ton of stuff. Just the occasional updates.

Good luck!

Key: C Major

Etude Title: Courante

Tempo: Quarter Note = 100-132

Play from Beginning to End (no repeats)

 

Errata:

M. 44 – the 6th note should be a high F (not a G)

Change the articulation of m. 35 to match the articulation of m. 37 and 39 (the second beat should be slurred in groups of 2)

All slurs indicate with dashed lines (e.g. m. 4) should be slurred as usual.

Selection 2

Page: 58

Key: Bb Minor

Etude Title: Op. 107/28

Tempo: Dotted eighth note 50-72

Play from Beginning to End

 

Errata:

Clarifications: All slurs that end with a staccato note under a slur should be slurred into and released as a short note.

Play the last notes of all slurs this way, with or without the staccato release.

 

m. 2 – 14th note should be B-flat

m. 2 – last note should be a sixteenth note

m. 4 – 11th note is A-flat (the accidental does not carry across the octave)

m. 6 – 21st note should be G-flat

m. 8 – 17th note should be C-natural
