“Roll up your sleeves and get started!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is another great book from Paul Edmund Davies. The format is very like that of the popular '28 Day Warm-Up Book' and covers the four cornerstones of flute technique very thoroughly. This is pitched at a slightly lower level, but players of all standards will benefit from using and adapting the material as necessary. Each section consists of an introduction and three exercises, each of which visits the 24 major and minor keys. Everything is backed up by practice notes which can be downloaded from the Simply Flute website, where teaching notes can also be found. This has all the hallmarks of a classic, so roll up your sleeves and get started!

From the Publisher

As flute players, we are encouraged from the earliest stages to focus on our scales and arpeggios and, as we become more proficient, on our studies (études). Sadly, for young players, this can feel more like some form of punishment rather than a path to musical enjoyment and mastery. Heaven forbid that we should actually enjoy playing our instruments!

The benefits of regular practice in the above disciplines only really become apparent as we mature and gradually grasp the idea that they are musical activities, through which we can learn to sculpt our flute sound and personality. Even then, the connection between scales, arpeggios and studies is not necessarily an obvious one.

A Consequence of Sequences aims to bridge that gap. By blending certain characteristics of scales and arpeggios into the more enticingly melodious and harmonic structures of studies, this book of sequences (covering Breathing and Phrasing, Fingers, Articulation and Intervals) aims to provide an opportunity to work on demanding technical issues, in bite-sized and manageable segments.
