“Something completely different!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

If you are need of something different to tackle, or you have a very mixed group of players this might be just the thng. Each of the pieces only has an illustration and some symbols of what to play so there is no conventional notation.This is very flexible as the group can be divided or used as a whole. Some of the effects are easier to assimilate than others, for example jet whilstles are used in Gust of Wind. This will help younger ones to find their diaphragams and extend the range of the more advanced. There are instructions for the conductor too - Curtain of Rain should be directed with an umbrella. There is plenty of scope for imporvisation here and this book is so useful on so many levels. Do give it try!
