Two posts in one day! I wanted to keep moving through the Andersen etudes, but I decided I’d like to give each recording its own post moving forward.
This one was full of chances to fight my current big nemesis, the cracked note monster. It turns out that all those things I tell my students to do (roll out, make sure the flute’s in the right spot on the lip, think about where the air is going) work for me too! I’ve taken about a week off from really serious interval/harmonic practicing, so I’ll have to revisit this one when I’m not so out of shape to see if it’s easier to play cleanly.
See you tomorrow!
