I second this. |
Then add the c on top of the g. (Third space)
Theyíll have to hop over a partial as you can hit Bb 3rd line on open.
Also begin taking them through slurs going lower.
Like C G C G CGCGCcccccc. Both of those notes under the staff.
Go through the series down to 123 on the slurs.
You can work their range even higher by adding the E 4th space and then G on top of staff to the first slur throughout the year or maybe in 7th grade depending where theyíre at.
To get to low c I have them start on c under the staff, go down to G below that, then add 3rd valve for low E then back to open for the bottom low C below the 4th ledger line. This adding 3rd on the 3rd note works through the series until you get to 23. Then itís switch to open for the 3rd note of the slur. 13 switch to 2nd, 123 switch to 1st. May not get that far down through the series but thatís the direction.
Hope that makes sense and good luck!
Check Houghtons horns for their French horn method book itís the best out there.
And for future years check out the horn camp manual on the 4hornsmen website.
Page 45 of the document has some slurs written out like the ones I talked about above that are great for beginners.
