From the Publisher

Daily studies designed to enable the flutist to produce optimum resonance and to develop the embouchure strength and sensitivity to confidently play multiphonics, whisper tones, natural harmonics and other extended timbres while simultaneously developing the beauty, power, color and control of the tone for traditional music. An important feature is the unique presentation of “throat tuning” — a breakthrough technique for tone development.
