Preface:
      This book of 'Classics for Children' offers young flautists a selection of twenty-six easy pieces for tuition purposes and concert performance. The selection ranges from the Baroque era to the Classical and Romantic periods, with some simple arrangements of well-known masterpieces included alongside original pieces as a good introduction to the classical concert repertoire. The range of notes required (not higher than e''') should be well within the capabilities of flautists who have been taking lessons for a year or more. Although most of the pieces look easy at first sight, they should not be underestimated. The challenges are often in the detail: quality of tone and breathing over long phrases in slower movements, intonation, articulation and dexterity in the faster movements. This collection is a good source of material for working on interpretation and musical phrasing. 
      The accompanying CD includes all the pieces as a complete version (for listening) and with just the piano accompaniments (for playing along). It can be used for practice at home and is designed to boost motivation. Moderate tempi have been chosen with tuition purposes in mind. 
      Enjoy your music making!
