P2 - B5


  • Tongue and slur notes while maintaining a controlled column of air:
    • using an appropriate tongue position for the instrument
    • coordinating tongue with fingers with more ease and control
    • developing clarity of sound, using staccato and simple mixed articulation

Ask learners to experiment with different kinds of articulation, including staccato in copy-cat phrases.

Teach learners to play simple, well-known tunes from memory using different articulations (by ear, from memory and notation) and discuss the musical effect.

Ask learners to make up some music for a story, using different articulations to illustrate mood, characters, actions, etc.
