FIT FINGERS-Level 1
The Andy Firth Woodwind Workout Series
What is Fit Fingers?
“Fit Fingers” is a carefully crafted series of finger exercises for various levels of woodwind performance based on select major and minor keys as they are required by the current Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) syllabus. “Fit Fingers” will however, work for any student or player as they have been designed to gently and gradually expose the player to various modes and arpeggios that they will be likely to encounter in standard repertoire for their chosen instruments. Think of “Fit Fingers” as a fun and thorough workout for your fingers before or even after you’ve been working on your set list pieces or chosen repertoire. You may use any dynamic levels or articulations that you would like to practice whilst using “Fit Fingers” but it is highly recommended that you practice the exercises without the backing track first before attempting to play with the backing tracks. “Fit Fingers” has been designed with the most swinging and contagious backing tracks I could come up with so that you’ll just want to keep playing right to the end of the book. If you’re not grooving by the end of the first page of these exercises…you’d better check your pulse!
Comes complete with pdf book and mp3 backing tracks.
