With the NV in our program I introduce the concept of tuning and have kids begin to check themselves with a tuner pretty early in the year. We have a speaker that I connect to and use a drone with TE during warm-ups pretty much constantly. I've airplayed TE onto our TV before to let all kids watch as a kid tunes, but not so much recently. |
Using the F drone I send F around the brass, TS, and clarinets before I go to the other woodwinds with A concert (clarinets do that one too).
Last year when the Saitama Sakae HS had their clinic at TMEA the amount of drones they used pushed me to use them more myself. If a kid doesn't know what in-tune sounds like they'll never understand what they're being told to fix!
