Please download the files that I ripped from your CD today: I uploaded them to this Google Drive folder.

  1. C major scale overtone exercise – remember, envisioning the pitch you’re aiming for before you play will prepare your body to produce it!
  2. Db major scale, pg 64 of Voxman book. Use alternate Gb/F# fingering and play the lowest 3 notes (Db, C, Bb) slower than the rest of the scale to really learn them.
  3. Amen – first chorus with metronome at 120 bpm. Listen to it first to hear how it’s played on the recording!
  4. Listening:
    • ‘Amen’ from shared folder
    • Blue Bossa by Joe Henderson
  5. Continue Voxman piece – we’ll take a look at this next week.

Alex
