The Progress Chart

Inefficiency Is The Cause Of Most Problems


To get fast and consistent improvement, use the Practice Progress Charts when working on harmonic slurs, single and multiple tonguing.  Simply tick a box or 2 every day to improve efficiency dramatically.


Print out many charts and write down the exercise name on the top i.e. E-A Harmonic Slur etc…



The following exercise requires use of the clock and metronome.



  • Choose a TEMPO and DURATION
  • Start the METRONOME
  • Count the beats/seconds (zero tolerance for inaccuracy)
  • Check the appropriate box when you are satisfied you’ve accomplished the goal
  • Find your SPEED LIMIT
  • Find your DURATION LIMIT
  • Come back daily to break through to new levels of technical mastery.


The only way to increase your limits is
by being more efficient and playing freely.
