Our version

We've made our own version to fit the notes we know at the moment.

 

Slurs

Start by practising all the slurs. Tongue the first note, then join the second one to it.

Keep breathing out and change notes just by moving your fingers. 

These are all 2 note slurs, so remember to tongue the 3rd note:                        Don't slur them all together!

'Dee-ee

Dee'

Try to move your fingers quickly and neatly. Listen for any unwanted sounds in between the notes.
