“A mixed ability group? No problem!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -

Zoe Booth has developed the art of satisfying everyone with her great arrangements for mixed ability flute groups. This Gershwin favourite needs five players to work well but there is scope for increasing the numbers to make an even bigger impact. Everyone gets the tune, everyone is able to play within their comfort zone, no-one feels left out and the more advanced are stretched - perfect! You can even use a B flat clarinet if that's what the situation demands. Designed to cover all eventualities, you will turn to this piece and others like it time and time again!
