Welcome

Congratulations on making it this far. Becoming a WindWorks subscriber demonstrated a refusal to tread water any longer and is a HUGE win against the energy-saving, risk-averse 1.0 BRAIN.

Largo Fundamentals

is all about preparing to play your instrument in an efficient way; will you stick with the PROCESS??? Unlike other methods that simply provide exercises, WindWorks makes sure that your psychological approach to playing is correct. In the famous words of teaching guru Arnold Jacobs, “the instrument stimulates old habits” and we add to that the word “beliefs”. The way you think about playing, your belief system, is paramount to your ultimate success. Simply picking up your instrument and playing will not help you improve greatly. Take the time to watch these new videos and be sure to understand exactly their meaning. Skipping ahead will lead to your eventual failure. Watch each video multiple times to grasp the concepts and enjoy practising with the Practice Drones and the built-in metronome and clock.

Lessons

At first glance, these exercises look incredibly easy but doing them with correct PROCESS is very challenging. This is the launch pad for your entire development, DO NOT RUSH. Take your time to grasp the concepts as they get very complex as you work through the course. Follow the rules closely and enjoy the process!

Lessons

Adagio Status Stage
