“An alternative curriculum”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
The Teacher’s Manuals provide an in-depth guide on how to implement the Flute Method. For example, the use of the Pneumo Pro is fully explained and all aspects of technique, theory and composition are fully explored. Extracts from the student books are reproduced with guides showing the skills required and how to teach them. It’s all linked together very well and is almost a mini curriculum in itself. In the first book there’s even a page on to how to charge your students! Book 2 discusses the pieces at length, and has ‘Historical Insight’ sections on each composer. The ethos behind these books could be incorporated into any teaching method very successfully.

From the Publisher

This award-winning Teacher's Manual is essential for  teaching the award-winning Blocki Flute Method Book 2. The manual begins by giving detailed instructions on to how use the Foundation Pages and the "fill-in-the-note" method for each new rhythm pattern, beginning with two beat eighth note patterns.  The page-by-page instructions are filled with ideas such as using harmonics, practice techniques, creating variations, and historical insights. Also included are instructions for solving tone problems, and teaching techniques such as vibrato and double tonguing.

As students progress through the keys of B-flat, FM, E-flat, CM, GM and DM each key is constantly reviewed with increasingly difficult rhythm patterns. When used with the Blocki Flute Method Supplementary Duet Book the students will have over 75 exciting duets to play.  Each melody was meticulously chosen and placed to provide thorough and systematic review of difficulty finger changes. (ex.-The high G to A finger change is quite challenging, but when practiced in an engaging piece like Up on the House Tops, it seems to be easier to execute then when first encountered in difficult literature.  Up on the House Tops provides over 20 high G-A finger changes in the space of  three lines of music!)

Enharmonic note spellings such as E-sharp and C-flat are often first encountered in difficult literature, making is hard for the student to know if they are making a mistake.  The Blocki Flute Method introduces these new notes spellings in easy to recognize pieces such as Jingle Bells or Three Blind Mice to ensure that students can easily hear when they make a mistake and quickly correct it.

The book includes: Il  Est Ne (a French Carol), The Chase!, Austrian Folk Song, Silent Night, the beautiful Korean melody Airirang, Maple Leaf Rag, Bach Bouree, Russian Sailors’s Dance, the fun “To Be or Not to Be”, Theme from Master Piece Theatre (Mouret), Dona Nobis Pacem, Czech Dance, Schumann’s Happy Farmer and the Wild Horsemen, In the Hall of the Mountain King, Haydn’s Rondo, Mozart's Burlesque, Scottish Piper, Deck the Halls, Italian Wedding Dance (Tarantella), Turkey in the Straw, The Entertainer, Can-Can, Drums and Fifes, Gounod’s Funeral March of a Marionette, Theme from Carmen, Up on the House Tops, Jolly Saint Nick Theme and Variations (great to play for an ensemble of mixed ability levels)…….and many more pieces!
