5 out of 5 “Brilliant”

Reviewed by Louise, 4 years ago

I am learning to play the flute after years of Clarinet playing so needed a good book which I could use to improve my technique, as well as embouchure as I want to pick up good habits in the early stages although this book is aimed at the advanced flutists. I read some good reviews about this book by Marcel Moyse De La Sonorite and have noticed some improvements in my playing!

Mr Moyse, in his lifetime had amazing wisdom and knowledge about flute playing, the detail about embouchure in the first few pages has helped me tremendously and I am really happy I bought this book.

5 out of 5 “A very useful resource”

Reviewed by Kate, 2 years ago

This book was recommended by my teacher to help improve consistency and quality of sound and intonation. The exercises are simple but within a couple of weeks of doing them two or three times a week I have started to hear a difference. (I would love to practise daily but as an amateur enthusiast I don't always find the time!)

I was delighted to find it on sale, because it is a very slim volume for the price, but I will get a lot of use out of it.

4 out of 5 “Excessively expensive”

Reviewed by Christian, 1 year ago

Regarded as essential for the flutist and although valuable for refining tone it is excessively expensive. I use in conjunction with the Moyse Daily Exercises but particularly with the Reichert Sept Exercices Journaliers which I find the most beneficial for good tone production.

5 out of 5 “A timeless classic”

Reviewed by Clive, 8 months ago

No flautist at or above Grade 5 standard should be without this if they are serious about developing their embouchure. I finally decided to replace my dog-eared copy purchase over 50 years ago and was pleased to find that it has been reduced to a more manageable A4 size. Sure, it's expensive for such a slim volume, but used properly and regularly it's guaranteed to help you become a better flautist.
