The Best of Flute is a major collection of the best loved pieces and studies selected by the major examination boards, from current favourites to forgotten gems. These books include the pieces which have captured the imaginations of teachers and students over the years.
Technically tried and tested, all the pieces have been rigorously researched by Flute expertSally Adams. A CD of performances and Piano accompaniments is included, as well as useful practice tips. One piece from each list of the 2008-2013 Associated Board syllabus is included, enabling candidates to use the books in their graded examinations.
Once you've picked yourself off the floor & reminded yourself that the performance versions are played by a professional not a grade 3 student (!) this is a fantastic collection. A good selection of pieces and studies from the Exam Board Lists. The performances help enormously with learning the pieces and provide a goal to aspire to (one day :)) Anonymous

This is a great book if you are sitting SQA Standard Grade, Intermediate 2 or National 5 Music, as all the pieces are from recent exam syllabus repertoire so there are no worries about choosing something of the right standard. Good variety of pieces and styles, and with the c.d. it makes it easier to practise. You can even use the accompaniment c.d. in your SQA exam,(but not ABSRM - you need a live accompanist for that.) Piano accompaniments are provided too, so all in all an excellent buy. Anonymous
