Dear Flute-lovers and Galway morning scale classmates,
Here is the free pdf of part two of the Moyse Exercises Journaliers, re-written and simplified for those flutists of a novice or early intermediate level who are following the James Galway thirty-day scale class.
I used the advanced-level Moyse book to create these more inspiring and approachable versions for flute students, and I've got at least four students of my own about to join in for the thirty day challenge.
This has been a BLAST re-writing these.
Download Part 2, of my exercises in pdf here.
You'll find pages 10 to 21.
You can hole-punch and put in a binder.
Moyse's practice plan for the real Exercises Journalier book is:
Day 1 - ABCD
Day 2 - ABCD
Day 3 - EFGH
Day 4 - ABCD etc.
I suggest some schedule such as this for novices and intermediate flutists, especially if you didn't already have fabulous two octave major and minor scales already in your smoulderingly great technique:
Day 1 - A
Day 2 - A
Day 3 - B
Day 4 - B
Day 5 - C
Day 6 - AB
Day 7 - C
Day 8 - ABC
Day 9 - D
Day 10 - ABC
Day 11 - E etc.
...or some such plan as you devise.
The idea would be that each time you return to an earlier lettered section, you can expand your range, and use the metronome to click ahead in tempo.
Part three to follow will be these major and harmonic minor scales in thirds.
I'll get to that this weekend.
Hey, I'm totally having fun!
All the best, Jen
