This collection of 21 popular tunes has been carefully arranged and graded to provide attractive teaching repertoire for young flautists. The familiarity of the material will stimulate pupils' enthusiasm and encourage their practice. The technical demands of the solo part increase progresively up to the standard of Associated Board Grade I. The piano accompaniments are simple yet effective and should be within the range of most pianists.
Jerry Lanning is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He is a widely experienced arranger in both popular and classical fields, with many published arrangements to his credit. He also teaches (mainly the piano) at Wycombe Abbey School and Bradfield College.
This a great addition to the 'Making the Grade' series. I find it a ideal bridging/relaxation book after Grade 1. The tunes are very playable and popular with my youngsters and they gently introduce the next set of keys and rhythmns. The piano parts add interest, without taxing non-pianists like me! Anonymous
