This is the second book in the AMA 2000 flute series. Once again the photos and the CD are integral to the educational concept. The piano parts are simply written, to encourage younger students to play music together.
The book deals with familiarising the student with the first two registers and covers the top register up to G3. There is a wide variety of repertoire covering the technical elements including favourites such as Papageno's Song, Allegretto from Dvorak (8th Symphony), Mozart, Theme and Variations, Pink Panther, Waltzing Matilda.
This is probably the best beginner's flute book around. I cannot fault this book - Pan, London, 1998/1999
