 Re: Rose Etudes at Warp 9 for (Texas) HS Auditions

seabreeze - Thanks! Yes I think we all know this etude. Even after all of these years I think I can play it by memory! Hated it actually. Pretty boring. But it's actually pretty hard. I was looking through the 32 etudes. There's so many other nicer etudes in the books. I also hated the Brahms Sonata's but love the quintet. I enjoy the Spohr Concertos too but no one ever plays them.

I still stand behind what I said regarding thinking of what the piece reminds the player of. This will keep the player from rushing the easier passages and getting hung up on the articulation if you push it to 128 or something in that area, then have to slow down. Clear and really LIGHT articulation really makes the piece exciting. Also very strict attention to the rhythms. Maybe a very French approach to this piece. (Huge Hint to practice habits) Meaning the tongue should be almost touching the reed at all times to give you that light French attack to the reed. This can separate the good players from the very best player. To achieve this sometimes the player has to play just a note or 2 in just one measure to get this technique correct. Light, light, light articulation. This will also slow down the student when working on just a few notes at a time. Once he nails it correctly make him do it 5 times correctly.

I guess this is why I still know this by memory. The articulation drills over and over. The tongue hitting the reed so lightly with strong air flow through the horn.

Ask the student what it reminds him of. I know what I feel, but let the student find his way. Hope this will help his approach to the articulation, which I think is the key to making the piece light and lively. Oh, maybe try practicing on a shade softer reed at first. This prevents biting when articulating in the upper register, plus air flow.
