Practice these High Range exercises along with the video:

Irish Tunes - a few Hornpipes, a Polka, and Turkey in the Straw. Practice the hornpipes with the drum play along track (you can slow the tempo of the track by clicking the settings icon and choosing to alter the speed):

The Entertainer: This piece has 4 main sections which we'll call parts A, B, C, and D. Practice each section with these slower recordings:

Supp Stud #5 (cl; 90bpm)
00:00 / 03:16

Menuet in 5 Keys - Check out the Menuet Practice Track below where I focus on the trickiest bits.

When you are solid with the that track, then go ahead and begin practicing the whole piece with the drum tracks above, beginning at 60bpm is a good place to start. Maybe you only need to play m. 9-24 and m. 25-end at 60bpm, 70bpm, and 80bpm?
