Hi Kamran! Here's a review of the past lesson (September 1) and what to practice for the next lesson...

What we covered:

Below are some of the things we discussed:

1) Theory/Glossary:
  • None this week.

What to practice:

1) Technique:
  • Long Tones: Expanding from G. Important: Get set, then breathe from the corners (and not from within the horn). Take advantage of the "pendulum" of the air) (print from "Sheets to Download page")
  • Chromatics: Expanding from F# (print from "Sheets to Download page")
  • Slurs: review the slur exercises (print from "Sheets to Download page")
  • Scales: we'll use a checklist at next lesson when scales are memorized
2) Method:
  • None this week.
3) Repertoire/Composition:
  • Song For My Father - practice with the Aebersold CD; we'll review at next lesson
  • C Blues - use your play-a-long; for now limit yourself to ONLY the notes of the C Blues Scale.; experiment with different rhythms, particularly those on your Jazz Rhythms sheet (print from "Sheets to Download page")
4) Listening:
5) Internet:
  • Trumpet Game: write down your high score on your lesson sheet
See you at your next lesson!   :)
