“This is such a great publication!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
This is such a great publication! Hilary Taggart and her son Rob have combined their talents to produce a conventional progressive flute book with a genuine pop backing CD. Rob is a talented musician who has worked with the likes of Katie Melua so he knows exactly how to write in this idiom. Hilary's credentials are firmly rooted in the French flute tradition and it is the progressive nature of the book that is so appealing. As with most of her writing, each piece comes with an explanation of the new requirements and challenges. The first (Motor City) uses BAG and crotchets and minims, and by Twitterbug , the last track, you will need quavers and a note range up to C above the stave. There are 2 numbers in G minor and 1 in D major and although mostly written in 4 time, the rhythmic base is fairly straightforward. There is only one backing track per piece but as the melody is buried in the midst of a digital wash of sound and not on the flute, this is not a problem. This book will be useful in so many different situations, and as it is fairly priced I'm sure it will prove to be completely invaluable.
