Title: How?--Tremulo from A to C# above the staff

How do you tremalo from 1st leger line A to 2nd leger line C#? I can\'t find it anywhere.

My best way is to lift the thumb and 2nd LH finger together, leaving the first LH finger down. This means that the register key is released, but the high register will remain. Put on the RH Ab/Eb key with your pinkie in order to stabilize the horn.

It takes a bit of practice to do musically, and will never be the fastest tremulo.

Hi Daniel D , that is the correct fingering which is quite good once you get use to the awkward feel of it. It also helps with the balancing of the instrument  to have the RH pinkie on the Ab/Eb key as well. It alters the intonation a bit but as it is a tremblo, it is acceptable.
For an extensive list of fingerings , including trills and tremblos, for all woodwinds  go to www. wfg. woodwind.org.
