This weekend my Singer exercise book, Embouchure Building for French Horn, finally arrived. Also, I broke down and bought the tiniest metronome ever. I’m not entirely sure I like it. It… well, it squeaks. A beep or tick or tock would be so much nicer for someone as frightened of mice as I am. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, though.

It will be interesting to see what these two tools do for my playing. I’ve been missing having a metronome quite a lot in recent weeks, and it’s absolutely necessary for some of the Singer exercises.

That is all: it is early and I’m not meant to be online at this time of day (the internet is a TRAP, folks).
