  • Continue to develop and play with an appropriate and functional embouchure, suitable for the particular instrument:
    • gradually developing stamina and flexibility over an increasing range
    • recognise and, with guidance, correct faults

Ask learners to:

  • play longer notes to develop stamina
  • using a greater range of notes and wider intervals, move between notes, maintaining a steady sound on each

Show learners how to:

  • play longer exercises and pieces, by ear, from memory and from notation
  • play longer pieces with a greater range, maintaining tone quality

Ask learners to imitate phrases, ensuring they listen carefully to intonation.

Encourage learners to experiment with bending a note to make it sharp or flat.
