When we play pieces or studies, we are understandably eager to perform them at a good speed and with flow. Then, all of a sudden, a few beats or bars of intervals emerge from the page and that flow is instantly interrupted. We stumble our way through in a mild blind panic and once we can see daylight again, wipe the perspiration from our furrowed brows!In a creative and practical approach to intervals, Paul composed a few short studies to train us to be both mentally and physically prepared for these large leaps within the context of various passages. These studies incorporate a simple melody and rhythmic variations that are perfect for working toward the goal of performing intervals smoothly. His lesson begins with a video demonstration followed by text and downloadable sheet music. Follow this link to view the full lesson on Paul's Simply Flute website.
