Excellent tutor books for starting young flautists on their musical journey.
My young flute players are really enjoying these books. Beautifully set out.
Beginner Duets & Trios Book 4
Young players who are just starting to read music can find it difficult to follow a duet or trio. This book solves the problem with colour coded music, making it easy for beginners to follow their ensemble part.
Students only need to know 4 or 5 notes to start playing the first duets in this book, which covers Beginner and Preliminary levels.
The music spans a wide range of composers, as well as traditional tunes from around the world. There is a selection of festive music, a section of rounds (3-part, 4-part, 8-part) and there are warm up exercises, each focusing on one aspect of ensemble technique. The arrangments are flexible, most work as either a Duet or Trio.
There are free recordings of all pieces on The Young Flute Player YouTube channel. These videos can be adjusted to any speed, so are great for students to practice their part at home.
This ensemble book can be used independently, or with the tutor/method books in The Young Flute Player series.
