“Something different!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
It's a brave person who meddles with a classic, especially when it's as influential a work as Taffanel and Gaubert's Daily Exercises. However, Sophie Dufeutrelle has moved them on by splitting them into different sections, opened them out to a wider audience by making them more accessible to the less advanced and even given them a Beatbox makeover! T&G would really approve!

From the Publisher

After the extraordinary success of her previous books, Sophie Dufeutrelle returns in The Flute Way 3 with a new look at one of the flute's essential study resources: Paul Taffanel and Philippe Gaubert's Seventeen Daily Exercises.

Sophie's dual experience as a teacher and composer has allowed her to develop a toolbox adapted to 21st century needs. Aimed at flutists from the 3rd year of study up to professional level, the book focuses on sound, intonation, breath, phrasing, rhythm and tonguing.

Winner: NFA Newly Published Music Awards 2020

Harmonized for up to three voices and enhances with numerous suggestions in rhythm and articulation, the well-known scales become fun to play with arrangements for flute duets, trios and even ensembles. With these adaptations, not to mention the intriguing possibilities of the beatbox-flute, The Flute Way 3 brings a new energy to daily practice.
