How to Play Notes With Dots AND Slurs

Aug 04, 2016

Wondering how to play dots AND slurs over notes? 

This question came from Dale who asked exactly this: how do you play notes that have dots and slurs over them.

It's called mezzo staccato, and in this short lesson, I demonstrate exactly how to play a passage of mezzo staccato notes.

Being shown the right way to play the flute makes the world of difference.

I remember learning tiny new techniques from world class teachers which just exploded (in a good way!) my playing.

Add all these little techniques up and wow - it sure beats years and years of being told "just practice more" by my teachers.

Wanna know the secret to playing really well?

The secret is that it's not really a secret! It's just proper technique.

And I love that I can make a big impact to flutist's playing, happiness and life, just by clearly demonstrating these techniques I've learned over the eyars.
