Considered as the practical guide for Flute, Complete Flute Method was co-written by Paul Taffanel (1844-1908) and Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941). Published in 1923, this method is strongly progressive: helping the beginner from the very start, it should develop and help them to master the necessary theory, technique and tone of this instrument.
The 227 pages all contain descriptions and comments written in French, English, German and Spanish, which stand out by their precision and detail.
Recognised worldwide thanks to Marcel Moyse, Emmanuel Pahud and Pierre-Yves Arthaud among others, Complete Flute Method demonstrates and confirms the quality and professionalism of these French flautists and their methods.
Paul Taffanel (1844-1908) and Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941) are both professional flautists who collaborated on different projects together, including this method and the '17 Grands Exercices Journaliers de Mécanisme'.
