    Song for the Frontline - John Barber

    Song for the Frontline was composed in April 2020 during the UK’s lockdown imposed to limit the spread of the deadly Coronavirus. Amongst many other consequences, the lockdown brought about the end of ensemble rehearsals and as such, Song for the Frontline was released as the third of Foden’s ‘Stay at Home Banding’ performances. Written to help raise funds for the NHS and other frontline services, the music was recorded by band members individually at home with the ‘premiere’ given on Thursday 16th April 2020 alongside a video featuring colleagues working with the Police, Fire services, the NHS and within other frontline roles. The music is a reflective ballad with a catchy motif that unifies the verse, whilst the chorus builds to highlight the emotional context of the time in which it was written. The piece is composed to be accessible both to the listener and performer hopefully allowing all the opportunity to take part and enjoy the music.Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)

    The 30 Day Technical Challenge This 30 day program is a step by step guide to improve your technique. Each practice session is laid out day by day, exercise by exercise for maximum technical improvement. During the next 30 days you will improve: Breathing Lip Flexibility Single Tonguing Finger Dexterity The Bootcamp will only require a small amount of extra time on top of your normal practice regiment. All you will need is a metronome and your instrument. It does not matter if you are grade 1 or grade 8+ this program will improve your technique. Practice Until Failure If you do not practice until you fail, you are not pushing your technique to its limit. Whether it be squeezing the last drop of air out of your lungs in a breathing exercise, or completing a tonguing exercise until your tongue is completely exhausted, the harder you push yourself the more progress you will see during the 30 days. Taking The Tests Take all 4 tests on day 1. Try to push yourself and reach the highest level possible. There over 20 levels that you can achieve on each test. Start each test from the beginning, playing each exercise at the stated tempo markings before moving on. Exercise 1 corresponds to levels 1 - 5, one level for each tempo written. Levels 6 - 10 are from Exercise 2, 11 - 15 Exercise 3 and 16 - 20 Exercise 4. If you reach level 20, continue changing the tempo on Exercise 4 until you reach failure. Add 1 level for every extra tempo marking completed. Make note of the level you achieve for each test, this will be needed for your comparison at the end of the 30 days. Once you have taken the tests simply follow the calendar and complete the set exercises each day. The weekend practice sessions ask you to repeat the exercises from earlier in the week. This gives you a second chance to push your technique further on each exercise. The Final Test Complete the 4 tests again on day 30 and compare your results. Good luck and enjoy the next 30 days!
