Flute Basics is a landmark method by one of the leading figures in flute education. It starts at absolute beginner level and progresses to about Grade 2 level.There are 22 stages and each section includes a wonderful variety of concert pieces from the great composers,traditional tunes and fun, original exercises such as finger gyms and warm ups to help establish a sound technique, factfiles and quizzes to teach notation and general musicianship. It also contains helpful, clear fingering charts and rhythm boxes and great illustration. This teacher's book offers tips on how to approach new techniques and motivate young players alongside duet parts and simple piano acommpaniment. This book would be particularly helpful for teachers who are not Flute specialists. The CD that accompanies this book is available separately.
The accompaniments provided in here to support the pupil's book are very useful. Pupils enjoy hearing a fuller sound and it helps them with the timing of the music. Well worthwhile buying to enhance the pupils music making. Anonymous
