Help With Error Detection and Tone Quality
Posted by Student Teacher on 3/2/2021, 12:29 pm
I'm a percussion student teacher this semester and when listening to the various ensembles in the band program I struggle to catch some of the mistakes in wind sections that my mentor directors hear. (pinched/tense sounds, poor tone quality, individual players being sharp/flat, etc.)
As I prepare to become a director myself, what are some exercises I can do to further help develop my ear and catch some of these mistakes?
Thanks for your suggestions and advice!
