This week’s Kopprasch combines triadic and stepwise patterns. Strive for evenness of sound and articulation across the dynamic and register changes. Focus on air speed intensity rather than excessive embouchure motion at a slow tempo before attempting faster speeds. Suggested tempo is quarter=84-88. Make sure you put enough air into the descending octave slurs, (mm. 17-18).
