Estudos de flexibilidade como parte do aquecimento do trombonista. (Flexibility on trombone warm up)
The translatiion (made on Google Translator - sorry ;(
My name is Alexander Teixeira and I would like to talk about the importance of flexibility in the trombonista warm up.
00:12 - Start of flexibility with long notes, always starting from the first position.
00:29 - Notice that I use the tongue only in first note. You must playe with a lot of air and without interruption of the air stream.
0:44 - Second position.
12:53 - Notice that the second position, by the way in all positions you must open a little stick in the middle note. This is because this note is high and needs to be corrected downwards.
1:14 - Now we do in the third position: A flat, E flat and A flat again.
1:35 - We have a fourth: G, D, G. And now we do Gb, Db, and Gb.
1:45 - Sixth position: F, C and F.
1:54 - Seventh position: E, B and E.
2:04 - This study is for you start your flexibility. Now let's play the Bb and go to the F. The movement should be faster.
2:56 - Another interesting exercise: start Bb medium and go to D.
3:36 - Try to increase the speed gradually. (This part of my rhythm was not very regular - I suggest making with a metronome).
4:00 - Try from the first position until the seventh. Go back with one breath.
4:23 - After you've mastered this region, ascend or descend. Let's do the D and F.
4:43 - F to Bb.
4:58 - Bb to F
5:17 - Notice that the beginning is very difficult to make the notes more quickly, but start slowly and increase the speed each week.
5:31 - Another interesting exercise: Bb1 to Bb 3, play all the notes.
5:56 - I played all the notes in the first place ..... second place .... until the seventh.
6:28 - When I do this exercise quickly, I do not use the pitch correct position, since the goal is to reach the fullest extent. But if you slow, you can correct positions. For example, in fourth position: the D is slightly open and B is closed. And high F will be closed (as B).
7:07 - In the fifth Db will be opened, closed and Bb And closed.
7:30 -- About this question of refining the positions I will speak in another class. There is another exercise that I usually do every day: play the Bb average, down to F and up.
8:36 - When you have mastered the extension do it again climbing to the D.
9:00 - After a few months practicing not be satisfied and go up to F.
9:35 - Well, that's what I had to talk about flexibility. Thanks and until next time.
