        Studies specific to piccolo with tips on issues specific to piccolo playing.
        Aimed at the professional orchestral player who plays mainly flute but from time to time may be asked to play piccolo, the recommendation is to play for 30 -40 minutes a day out of this book to be picc. ready!
        Studies are linked to popular orchestral pieces and split into technique e.g. articulation or fingering.
        Good warm up section and I also use the book with the flute.
        Probably aimed at a grade 6 + flute player who plays the piccolo as a second instrument.
        Focus of the book is for the orchestral player, warm up pieces have one written part then it asks you to continue the exercise by transposing down a semitone each time, so as a hobby player to get the most out of the warm up seciton you may need to brush up on your music theory!

        I already have the excellent Trevor Wye/Patricia Morris flute practice books and my one concern was that the piccolo book would rehash the same material. This worry turned out to be unfounded - the material here is different, focusing on the transition from flute playing to piccolo playing and with a greater emphasis on studies. Not for the novice musician but a must have for those flute players who have reached a reasonable standard and want to double on the piccolo.

        Really good book for someone that can already play some quite difficult pieces on the flute as it is quite difficult. Does really help your tone though.
