As beginners, they need to practice moving from every note to every other note they know. Clarinets - Practice C-G, C-F, C-E, C-D a million times. Then practice D-G, D-F, D-E, D-C. Then E-G, E-F, E-D, E-C... etc. Ask them questions like, "What do your fingers need to do to go from one note to another?" This is possibly more important for the flutes at the beginner level because their first 5 note fingerings aren't as linear. |
Past that, they just need practice doing it methodically.
