Welcome to week 4 of My Arban Adventure.
I am very pleased with how things are coming along. I am seeing a lot of progress with embouchure and regaining coordination between tonguing, fingering, and breath support. I am gaining more endurance. It’s a good feeling to wake up every day looking forward to playing. In fact, there have been a few days that I wasn’t able to play much in Arban because I had too much going on and just didn’t have the time—I really missed getting to play.
Refining my method seems to be an every week thing at this point. So, I suppose change is my normal until I get things just the way I want them. I have been figuring out what works best through trial and error. Hopefully, there will be more trial and less error.
Here is a list of what you will find on Week 4:
