All books are user friendly, with easy-to-read notation and fun illustrations. They follow a progressive learning structure, with technical exercises, performance pieces, music games, fingering charts and more.


Book 1 is an introduction to the basics of playing a flute, with Book 2 subsequently developing skills until the end of 2nd grade. Book 3 is the Teacher’s Book of piano accompaniment and duets, whilst Book 4 and Book 5 complement the tutor books with colour coded duets and trios, establishing ensemble playing skills.


Book 6 is a tutor book especially written for adult learners and teenage learners.


Festive Flute Fun is an extra book of solos, duets and trios from festivals worldwide. 

A great start for beginner flute!

The Young Flute Player is the best book I have come across for absolute beginners … effortlessly it builds the student into a confident, fluent flautist.

A delightful and thoroughly well thought through programme of learning for all ages, but in particular, young people.

I enjoy using this series for my students, and have found them to be excellent tutor books for starting young flautists on their musical journey.

I just needed to drop a line and say that all of my students who have started the year with your books are doing amazingly.
