Starting Out - First Pieces for New Flautists

Schott ED 12762 ISMN M-2201-2267-5

Short, tuneful pieces to help new flute players of all ages gradually widen their range of notes and rhythmic patterns. Opportunities are given to play with a piano accompaniment or with other flute players. Although these pieces are broadly progressnve in range of notes and rhythmic figures used, they are intended as a source of material from which the teacher can select to suit the needs of individual pupils rather than needing to work from cover to cover.

First published in 2004, First Pieces for New Flautists is intended for Beginner to 1. It has 20 original compositions on 42 pages and includes separate parts for each instrument.

All are offered with simple piano accompaniments and all can be played as solos, though most give an alternative or adchtional parts which can be played either instead of the accompaniment, or to make small ensemble pieces with other players. In some cases the top line of the piano part is suitable.

What they say

“a great book for beginners” “This is a great book for beginners which aims to develop the basic skills of rhythm and note reading whilst also introducing simple dynamics and articulation patterns. The note range starts at BAG and extends to one octave of G major by the last piece and although the time signatures are mostly straightforward both 6/8 and 5/4 are used near the end. The style is easy listening and as there are 20 tunes in this book it's not bad value at all.”
