Holding your breath for 16 measures of straight sixteenth notes, including staccatos, slurs, and accents in every measure, on an oboe. Try it.

I am proud to say that I have mastered it. It's for my All-County audition piece. Auditions on the 10th. Oh, god.

I wasn't sure to post this in the Sanctuary (because I can do it) or the Rants (because of how my head feels). Definitely the rants. :?

You should teach yourself to circular-breathe. I am absolutely terrible at holding my breath, so I can never sustain for very long. Now that I can circular breathe, though, I can play until my chops give out, without ever appearing to need a breath.

I tried to do that. I never got it, though. Couldn't keep the sound up; it always went flat at best.

Good idea. I'll try it, but I doubt I'll be able to master it, let alone do it, by Saturday. It'll be useful later though, I'm sure.

:shock: Ouch. My school doesn't have science coursework - we have these ISAs (investigation skills assessment) instead. I do History too, but our coursework was done in class. Its better that way IMO. My ICT and English deadlines are a long way away though. :D

(i need to get back to some revision. procrastination is overpowering me :P )

All I know is Dr. Hoffman is going to rip off my ears when she finds out I didn't read that article she handed to use before the break. That woman scares me sometimes...

Besides, the entire article is about a man who convicts all non-organ donors of murder. Really, it just made me laugh when I glanced through it.
