Activities and exercises practised away from 'traditional' flute practice can have great results. These work especially well with younger students, giving them variation to their practise routine, and offering alternative ways to improve their skills and techniques. This also works well in group...
Common sense at an early stage will bear flute fruit in the long term. Semi-advanced flutists and their teachers lose many hours correcting bad habits that could have been avoided. After six months of playing, efficiency, comfort, pleasure and beauty should be principles close to heart.
Though it is one of the oldest instruments to have been discovered, the flute has been one of the latest to have been 'perfected' for Western Classical Music. This means that compared with the violin or the piano, the flute has had a relatively small number of solo works by the composers of the...
