Funky Flute – A Course for Young Beginners (Bk.1) by Heather Hammond
The bestselling first volume in the Funky Flute series shows young flautists everything they need to know, from the very basics of how to hold the flute, getting a good sound and how to read music. Colorfully illustrated and visually appealing to young children, Heather Hammond’s step-by-step approach is clearly presented and there are listening games, puzzles and quizzes to help keep pupils motivated. And naturally, it’s packed with funky, fun-to-play pieces in Heather’s inimitable style. Each pupil book comes with a CD of backing tracks and listening games which will enliven any lesson and encourage learning. Contains several tunes with optional 2nd flute part that the teacher can play along with.
