Daily routine for beginner, Good or not? Hi, Yet another noob question *blush*, for teachers/more experienced, this is the routine i have written for myself mostly from the replies i got to my previous thread here & my experience learning other instruments, i have been doing it for 4 days now, i am very happy with the rersults but i am a beginner & i dont want to ruin something and regret it later, so is it any good? any changes needed? i'd appreciate any suggestion. Here we go, A:45min, Long tones, with tounging, (using tuner), Objective: constant correct pitch, smooth decresc. & fade out. Each note is played twice, 15-16 seconds for higher notes and 30s for lower ones, no sharps & flats, from middle C to low G then back to Middle C and all the way up to the C above the staff. there is a 30s rest beetween each 2 notes. 10 minutes rest. B:45min, Etudes, (using mirror), with tounging,,, Objective: Keep the mouth position and jaw still. Middle C to the C above the staff and back, twice for each note,30s rest between 2 bars. Cresc(f)....Decresc....Cresc(fff)....cut. In 3/4: C,D,C ..... D,E,D .... E,F,E etc, (mf to fff) and cut. 10 minutes rest. C:120min. Scales, (using mirror), legatto, staccatto & tounged. Objective: build brain-finger-lip memory, no jaw movement esp. while descending. T=60 , 90 , 120 , 160 ,200. Quarter notes, one Octave and back x25. Middle C to staff C D to D E to E . . . One Octave from Staff C to the C above the staff... The End. all the best Reza.
