Advanced Flute Studies - The Art of Chunking


From the Publisher

Advanced Flute Studies: The Art of Chunking presents the first and only method for flutists to master the process of “chunking” as a pedagogical technique. Through exploration of technical studies, etudes, preludes, cadenzas, and solos, the flutist is introduced to basic through advanced chunking techniques to facilitate reading and tone development. Musical “Bon Bons” for articulation, intonation, and tone development are also integrated into the innovative curriculum.
