Tongue and slur notes while maintaining a controlled column of air:
using an appropriate tongue position for the instrument
coordinating tongue and fingers with more ease and control at a variety of tempi
playing with clarity and more flexibility, using a variety of articulations (including accents)
Ask learners to experiment with different articulations, using scales and arpeggios at a variety of speeds.
Experiment to find the appropriate pattern of articulation to match the requirements of the music, using some dynamic variety. Also ask learners to take account of the characteristics of different registers of the instrument.
