Mark Leigh : French Horn Long note (tone) daily exercise
Product Code : Leigh_05
This is our recommended daily exercise for French horn preferably with a practise mute, with the Yamaha being the recommended mute. Depending on your current level of ability, you may not be able to play all the notes in this exercise straight away but if you persevere you will be able to play ALL the notes. The duration of each note is only a guideline which you can vary as you progress. If you think the high notes near the end are impossible then they are possible on a Trombone so they are possible on a French Horn. The reason for using a practise mute is a) So you can play this any time without annoying anyone other than yourself ???? and b) To make your practise as hard as possible for you so that when you play without the mute ,it will seem easier than it was before you started doing the exercise The overall idea of this exercise is that if you have a 4 octave range as in this exercise , then you can easily play a 3 octave range. You will never need to play the extreme high and low notes in this exercise in public, but if you can play them , then your audience will appreciate you more than they would if you can''t.

In most cases, this is the arrangment being played back using the Sibelius video export facility, but in some cases this is an actual performance by groups commissioned by Undiscovered Brass to actually perform the arrangment.
