America's #1 flute specialty house since 1983.
The purpose of this work is to compile concepts which have come to me through tradition, by word-of-mouth, from fine teachers, from my own imagination and experience, and most importantly, through listening. Twenty-five years of teaching as well as goading my many students and colleagues gradually propelled me to the inevitable write-or-fight, leaving only the choice of approach. Having been on the (non) receiving end of a dull, stultifying early education, I have leaned toward "show-biz" tactics in developing pedagogical procedures for applied music. These tactics, I feel, serve to enhance and personify the art of music.
