Unit 11

New Note

To sound F1, your jaw needs to be quite open, and your lips looser than on the notes above it. It is also essential that your fingers completely cover each hole, and that you fully press the G and F keys. The slightest leak will cause the note to either growl or not speak. As you work on covering the holes and keys, use a gentle touch. Finger success is about good placement, not pressure. Keep your fingers relaxed so the can move fluidly.
