“Something different!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is a really interesting volume that uses modes to deliver a comprehensive study book for advanced articulation. Starting with a basic double-tonguing exercise written out in all keys there is then a series of short exercises, each on one note centre but written out in all the modes for that note. The difficulty of the exercise is changed in each mode which gives the practice more focus, and the practice tips and methods of working help problem solve. If you're looking for something to spice up your regular tonguing workout this is definitely the book for you!

From the Publisher

Kathleen A. Melago has composed various etudes in every key and mode in which to hone the ever-so-important skills of double and triple-tonguing. This book presumes a basic knowledge of these skills, however, interspersed amongst the exercises are are bits of advice from the author, as well as three of her teachers, Stacey Steele (Slippery Rock University), Angeleita Floyd (University of Northern Iowa) and Katherine Borst Jones (Ohio State University) to help master this skill. Additionally, the book is quite unique in that it helps the player familiarize themself with the various modes by explaining the music theory behind them, as well as giving plenty of examples. 2012 NFA Newly Published Music Competition - FINALIST
