“A handy guide to have in your collection!”
Tackling a vast amount of the standard excerpts requested in auditions, this guide is great for students preparing for auditions. The accompanying notes are really well written and straight to the point suggesting ways to practice and perfect the often notoriously difficult excerpts, with some really helpful ideas to alternate fingerings. The overarching approach to the works studied gives the student a grounding in most musical eras to then take what the book has taught and apply to the other significant works of the composer or era. Overall an inspiring guide to orchestral playing and the challenges presented to a flute player.
