Part 1. Twenty-Four Detache Warm-Ups

Robert Stallman presents The Flutist's Handbook: The Art of Staying in Shape.

From Robert Stallman:

'The Flutist's Handbook emerged from a stream of musical ideas I began to jot down during practice sessions after that 'aha' moment. As I worked with those ideas, I noticed a more spontaneous interest in practicing. In fact, I even looked forward to starting my day this way. As a result, my work on scales, arpeggios and long tones followed with more enjoyment and focused attention.

The Handbook opens with detache warm-ups for a good reason. It is vital to begin our practice with tonguing, as a clean attack is essential to producing a beautiful tone. Also, in working on tonguing (single, double, triple and tremolando) we stimulate and strengthen the jaw muscles that support the embouchure. As we fine-tune these muscles, we gain tonal center and clarity, qualities that may elude us at the beginning of our practice. One the tongue is alive and the tone is centered, we are ready to work further on our sonority with the melodic warm-ups in Part II.'

Part I: Twenty-Four Detache Warm-Ups. Part II: Fifteen Legato Warm-Ups.
