A comprehensive method by Mizzy McCaskill and Donna Gilliam with notes on interpretation, phrasing and ornamentation of Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary repertoire with examples of representative literature from each era. 

This comprehensive method for the beginner to advanced is especially designed for use in private lessons. It introduces each new concept with fingering exercises, scale exercises, and etudes. Advanced techniques and concepts such as harmonics, vibrato, trills, interpretation, and phrasing are outlined succinctly through descriptive text and musical examples. A segment called "Representative Literature" contains exemplary flute music and photographs of flutes from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary periods giving students a broad historical perspective of both flute literature and the development and use of various types of flutes.
