In writing this method for flute, the author has attempted to bring together all the elements of beginner flute playing, in a simple format with a minimum of text. Twenty-five brilliant, full color photographs clarify the difficulties encountered with the embouchure and the holding of the instrument. The author offers several explanations for the technical elements regarding hand positions, B flat fingerings, articulation, and other topics. Phrase marks and dynamics have been added to some of the pieces, but the majority of these have been left to the discretion of the teacher. The accompanying free CD is designed to encourage the awareness of the young flute player by presenting various accompaniment sounds, which have been created on a synthesizer. This method can be used with children as young as 7.
