“A different challenge!”

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

Gary Schocker is a prolific composer to say the least, and not everyone will love everything he writes. These eleven studies will be very popular though, as they present an array of technical challenges in a completely different way.  There is no escape from the usual suspects with finger technique. evenness of tone, breathing, tonguing and trills all covered, and they are certainly difficult. So when the likes of Andersen and Soussmann start to pall and your appetite for technical mastery diminishes, this book could be just the answer!

From the Publisher

The difficulty level in Gary Schocker's third book of etudes inspired the composer to title this collection Extreme Sports.. Each etude targets specific techniques, composed by a flutist with the knowledge and understanding of these particular demands. In addition to being fine concert fare, the etudes will help train and lengthen the breath, develop speed and fluidity, and provide beauty as well as challenge

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