50 mini etudes for flute.

  • solo flute (or piccolo).
  • selected, adapted and sometimes composed by Roz Trubger.
  • Difficulty Level: intermediate and above [ UK grade 4 +].
  • Published by popular demand !

These Kickstarters appeared originally as a series of short motivational pieces, posted individually two or three times per week on FaceBook. They were my contribution to players during the difficult times of Covid-19, and I was amazed and delighted by the response to them. This edition appears as the result of requests by many, many people for these mini etudes to be published as one volume.

Although each little etude has a clear technical objective, all the studies have a tuneful quality, as my starting point for selecting each one was the basic criteria of 'do I enjoy playing it?'. If I got bored, it didn't make the final cut. I t was necessary also for each etude to be of a particular length, so frequently I had to adapt or abridge the originals, and then I started to compose ever larger linking sections, responding to the taste and requirements revealed in the comments of the players.

Etudes include: one study in the Spanish Phrygian mode, one study using Whole Tone scales, and two studies written in an Octatonic scale, as well as optional harmonics practice.

The cover for the edition is designed by Julia Monaco, winner of our 'Design a Cover' 2020 competition.
