Hi, I was hoping you'd be able to answer my questions:
I am taking my Grade 6 Flute exam in a few weeks.
I wanted to know:
- When doing the scales, is it in even notes (not long tonic)?
- When you do slurred scales, when do you need to tongue - eg is it the first note of each octave, or not at all?
My flute teacher wasn't very sure when I asked her, cos she specialises in sax.
Hi SG violin & flute,
as far as I can say from memory:
- the scales are to be played in even notes (quavers) exept the last note that is to be played as crotchet.
- when playing slurred you should play four notes in one slurr and then start with a tongued one.
It is described in "scales and arpeggios for flute" and I will look it up tonight when I am at home again to make it sure (if not someone else does it during today).
