“Pesky problems solved.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Tackling technical problems of all kinds can sometimes be quite daunting and this great little book can really help to overcome any feeling of isolation when practising. All manner of issues are disguised under a blanket of imaginative duet writing, from chromatic scales, music based on JS Bach and pentatonics in 5/8. These are not easy and there is a real purpose behind each one, and the easily sourced practice videos on YouTube mean that you can solve everything and make music at the same time. Pesky problems solved at least some of the time.

From the Publisher

Created by a flute teacher to facilitate recurring topics in her own studio, DUO ETUDES is a fun approach to overcoming 12 familiar problems with rhythms, articulations, and a whole lot more! DUO ETUDES addresses these common music-learning challenges by creating specially composed pieces to build correct, new habits in exciting ways without those uninspiring, routine drill exercises. Anna MeyerÂ’s collection of lesson-based duets facilitates teacher/student playing so teachers can demonstrate and students imitate. Both parts of each duo etude are written at student level, allowing for the parts to be swapped back and forth at lessons, and played together among friends.
