From the Publisher

Students love duets!   In these 43 duets, the first flute part of each duet is found in Flute Zoo Books 1 – 3.  Consequently, the first flute parts are written in progressive order of difficulty. The second flute part is written for the teacher or a more advanced flutist. These second flute parts are not in progressive order. Many of the duets work well in group settings and as flute choir pieces by having the beginning students play the first flute parts and more advanced students play the second flute parts. Just as young choirs often sing with only two parts, this also works well with flutists. This is an excellent way to have all the students play together at the end of a recital.

These duets contain great literature for the beginner’s first years of playing and also work well as recital pieces. Having students play a duet with their teacher during their
first few recitals will greatly aid in easing recital nerves and will help to ensure success.

 

The Flute Zoo Books are fun, exciting, and engaging books that allow a slower walk through the award-winning Blocki Flute Method Book 1. These books, with their bright colors and cheerful imagery, were written with young flute students in mind, although we have found that older children love the fun songs and activities as well! After working through all four Flute Zoo books, students will be ready to start in Blocki Flute Method Book 2. The Blocki Flute method was designed to give the beginner an excellent foundation in beautiful tone, embouchure flexibility, rhythm and technique. This comprehensive and step-by-step approach was written to ensure success and includes theory and composition projects.

Tone and Flexibility: The method is designed so students can play in both octaves without having to read the notes in both octaves. This is an incredibly important aspect of teaching beginners. Teaching flute is not like teaching trumpet in which the high notes are more difficult. High notes become difficult when students only play in the low and middle octaves for as much as one year. The students then have trouble with embouchure flexibility, and the ability to form a smaller lip opening.

  • Emphasizes flexibility between octaves.
  • Large print makes it easier to learn note reading.
  • Fun composition pages reinforce what the student is learning.
