He also reminds us that there should be a great degree of flexibility and flow when playing triplets, especially if we are to play them expressively. The lesson is based on a four-bar phrase that is 15 seconds in duration. Paul suggests taking a breath after the second measure when you first begin practicing the four-bar phrase. When one is able to bring the phrase up to tempo (quarter note = 60), it should be possible to play it all in one breath. Click here to view the full lesson on Paul's Simply Flute page.
