ABRSM Scales And Arpeggios For Flute Grades 1-8

Books | Flute

Publisher: ABRSM Publishing
Format: Books | Instrumental Reference

The volumes in this series are designed to meet the needs of candidates preparing for the Associated Board examinations and to provide support material for teachers. Each volume prints all the scales and arpeggios for Grades 1-8 and an accompanying table sets out clearly the requirements by grade. Recommended speeds are also printed and helpful notes given on the various forms of articulation required.

A key feature of the series is the assistance it gives in layering the foundations of a secure technique. Each volume contains a diagram of the instrument, illustrating the essential key-work and a comprehensive fingering chart including the more usual and acceptable alternatives. n addition, highly experienced teachers have contributed notes on good fingering and on other aspects of technique, and the manual gives brief hints alongside certain of the scales and arpeggios to reinforce important points. In this way students will be encouraged to learn their scales and arpeggios thoroughly and non-specialist teachers will find much valuable assistance given in support of their work.

        Excellent content and a useful text for all flautists.
        The designation of what scales etc are required for each grade exam is a bot cumbersome to navigate.

        Great for Flute players looking to sit there ABRSM exams. Great fingering chart at the start of the book with helpful pictures that would be great for beginners. Vast array of scales and arpeggios with a grade by grade guide.

        This is a must have, I wish we had purchased this when my daughter started playing flute. Scales are not exciting but they form part of the exam and this book explains how to play the notes and gives practice pieces. This booked explained it far better than her tutor who gave us duff info of what she needed to know!

        Really good value for what it is, every single scale you'll need and for someone who hasn't really done many scales before and needs to do them all for grade eight, it's great knowing you've got them all covered in one book!

        Fantastic book - has improved my sight reading in a week, just by combing scales with my ordinary playing. Brilliant

        This was purchased for my son and I have to give it 5 stars also because it is a book of scales - it does exactly what it says on the tin! My son always gets the ABRSM books as they are clear ond concise and we are very happy with the purchase.
