      I have a question about the Largo Ascending Slurs. Above Largo Ascending Slurs Nr. 4 it says ” “Check In” at the end of the exercise “. What is the meaning of this phrase? We’re or with what do I need to check in?

      I hope someone can answer my question.

      Greetings,

      Reijer

      Hello Reijer

      that is an interesting question.
      So far I remember that means check you inhalation with your bent tip finger between your teeth.
      The aim is to inhale relaxed with an open throat.

      Hello Reijer,

      Yes, good question.

      I suspect that someone will be able to point out a specific reference for this “Check In”, but until then, when I “Check In” at the end of the exercise, I check if it feels like I have played the exercise with the feeling of humming/singing (with the Body’s Concert Hall remaining open and without any unnecessary musculature or manipulation) or if I can feel any unnecessary musculature or manipulation.

      Regards,
      Marc

      Good afternoon Hajo and Marc,

      Thank you for the aswer. I think this could be the meaning of the phrase. So I will “Check In” more after playing these excersizes and check my feeling.

      Greetings from Reijer.
