“Another lovely Taggart book!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

HiIary Taggart writes so well for the flute!  As usual with her music, each piece tackles a specific technical issue, for example Hooves will improve 12/8 articualtion, Yellow Sand covers E flat fingering and hand position, and Promenade addresses evenness of fingers and tonal control. That these quite advanced concepts are introduced through imaginative music making rather than though intensive exercises will make this book so much more appealing to a less experienced player. It's therefore invaluable!

Difficulty guide: 5-7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
