Drouet: 25 Studies for the Flute - No. 4

Time for your Sunday afternoon Etude of the Week post - here's Drouet No. 4 in D minor!

This was a great exercise for checking in with my flexibility in the middle of the flute range, which for me can sometimes be really tough. On this head joint, this can be where I have the hardest time getting a really nice clear flute tone if I'm out of shape. If I'm being honest, I am a bit out of shape right now! I'm working on getting myself back into a good fundamentals routine right now, so hopefully I'll start to see that pay off pretty soon.

I can't believe it's already October, but I'm looking forward to some cozy autumn practicing!
