“A smart book!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
This is a very useful book for presenting to beginner flutes. Each section has a fingering chart for the notes used as well a list of the note values so it can be used either as supplementary material to a standard tutor or as a tutor in its own right. It's clearly presented, progresses at a sensible pace and has well-chosen classical material. This may be a drawback for some but it does get the job done. With a simple accompaniment included as well as the downloadable version this really is a book for everyone and endlessly useful. Smart!

From the Publisher

The First Book of Classical Flute offers a selection of 100 melodies from classic repertoire, the result of Andrea Cappellari's many years of research and experience in music teaching. Students of any age will be able to perform melodies by classical composers from the very first lessons. All 100 short melodies consist of a minimum of three and a maximum of eight notes. Only basic rhythmic note values are used, from the eighth note to the whole note. The pieces are presented in progressive order of difficulty, and are in the most appropriate keys for the instrument. The simple piano accompaniments encourage ensemble playing at a beginner level and the recorded piano accompaniments are an excellent tool for practicing. A few selected melodies also have a second flute part as part of the recorded accompaniment. The book also includes a separate instrumental pull-out part.

Audio is accessed online using the unique code inside the book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
