A handy text filled with notes on embouchure, hand position, and breath support, daily warm-ups, major and minor scales and arpeggios, lower octave etudes, contemporary etudes, and a trill and note fingering chart! The easy-to-use format makes it an excellent companion to any beginning to intermediate method. The audio recording available online is an ideal way for the developing flutist to listen to and practice with the solo etudes found in the book. It contains contemporary etudes, lower-octave etudes, and extended range etudes. All etudes are presented in sections. Flute and piano tracks are followed by piano track accompaniments. The grouping of piano accompaniment tracks may facilitate the use of this recording in both studio and performance settings. All accompaniment tracks have an added two-measure introduction. Mixed-meter etudes begin with two measures of the meter found in the first bar of the piece.
