LONG NOTES: the work of long notes is to achieve a stable sound in the middle
and high register of the instrument, controlling the tuning. In all long note
exercises always use the tuner (or a note like drone) and metronome.
Play whole notes with a metronome at 60 per beat. Play this exercise connecting
note with note, slurring very well, with relaxed fingers. On the fermata, exhale
slowly, then breathe in and play the next four notes. This exercise can be done
with all major and minor scales in two octaves.
