“A traditional approach.”
Also available: Play-it-again Accompaniment book
This is a really good tutor with a very traditional approach to starting the flute. At the beginning there are some drawings showing how to blow, assemble and hold the flute and all the information throughout the book is clearly presented. It is not laid out in stages and only one new concept is introduced at a time so there is no pressure to progress at a certain rate. There is plenty of variety in the material with duets and accompaniments in the supplementary book and the whole thing moves along at a good pace.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
