1) Practice good posture.
Sit on the edge of seat. Keep your feet flat on the floor. Keep your shoulders up, like there’s a balloon pulling your head up. If you have good posture, your instrument will be more in tune, and the tone will improve.
2) Practice good rhythm.
Rhythm is when you play the note. It’s when you start the note and when end the note. Use a metronome to keep the tempo steady. Either buy a metronome, or use the free one at http://webmetronome.com/. Rhythm is the most important part of music!
Practice every day for at least 20 minutes. Beginning band students should be working on page 6 in the book Accent on Achievement. Have fun!Posted under Uncategorized
