Performance Notes for “Holiday Beatbox Flutes”
– Included with this piece is a handout that covers the most common flute beatbox effects (not only just those in this composition). Practice them first without the flute to get used to the different possible effects.
– The upper staff is the “traditional” flute part. Any note listed here should be fingered as written, including those with “x” note heads. Any time a note does not have a beatbox effect under it, it should be played normally.
– Below the staff is the beatbox part. The rhythm of the effects corresponds to the rhythm of the notes above it. You should finger the note listed in the upper staff while performing the effect shown below it.
