Test your Technique!
Let's face it, teaching & learning technique can be tricky!
Despite the tremendous value and significant benefits good technique has on learning music and playing with confidence, it can be hard to motivate young students to practice their scales. I appreciate my high school flute teacher’s patience and effort because I was one of those students! Now, decades into my own teaching career, I’ve tried to find and create new ways to teach technique that can be motivating and fun!
For some, this printable is nothing new - just an idea put on paper. For others, I hope this printable brings some fun to your studio and to your student’s practice.
This printable allows students and teachers to simply print all of the technical tests for the RCM level they are currently studying. Cut along the dotted lines, fold and throw into a jar. Draw scales randomly every day to improve your technique!
This PDF digital download includes:
-all technical tests for RCM exams preparatory through 10
-all required articulation patterns as a separate page to print & use with the technical tests
PLEASE NOTE: this printable is intended to be used as a teaching tool to help work on the technical tests set out by the Royal Conservatory of Music College of Examinations. For the most up-to-date information and for more details including required articulation patterns, metronome markings, and rhythm patterns, please view the RCM Flute Syllabus online: https://www.rcmusic.com/learning/examinations/academic-resources-and-policies/syllabi-look-for-any-syllabus-below.aspx
