Another Mini Exercise: “Hindy Slurs”

Hindy Slurs

This slur exercise is not just useful by itself but can demonstrate an important point. The intervals are derived from the opening of the Hindemith trombone sonata. Whenever we confront awkward articulated intervals, it can be very helpful to slur them as a practice technique. If the embouchure can cleanly navigate these leaps while slurring, chances are the tongued version will sound much better!
Here’s a pdf of these slurs.
