I Used To Play Flute: An Innovative Method for Adults Returning to Play
- Interesting, worth a look
'If you ever played the flute before, you know what a joy it is to participate actively in making music. That is exactly what this book is about. I have designed the book to include a wide variety of songs in many different styles, with the main idea being to have fun making music. Additionally, I Used To Play Flute contains many exercises for the adult musician to re-learn skills that may have been learned many years ago. It begins with a review of important aspects of music theory and notation, followed by warm-ups, scales and exercises that re-introduce you to playing the instrument and that help you build your 'chops' back up. The techniques covered are basic to playing the music included in this volume. The pieces in the book cover a broad range of styles and are generally familiar to most people who have been involved in listening to music through the years. I also hope that the songs in this book will rekindle some fond old memories of playing your instrument and reignite your desire to play music again, just for the fun of it.' Larry Clark
