One Octave Higher - Scale and Etude Book for Piccolo by Kathleen Dyer
This book is an introduction to the lives and music of great composers who have cleverly woven the sound of the piccolo into the orchestra tapestry. The excerpts are presented in their original keys in the lower octave of the piccolo. The scale exercise in each key should be practiced in conjunction with the corresponding excerpt. This emphasis will cultivate strengths in two of the most important categories of quality piccolo playing outstanding intonation and sensitive musicianship.
