  • 2007-03-07 00:00:00.0 A way to challenge young musicians

    I use this book to get my young flute players to accept playing in something other than key signatures of 2 or 3 flats. Most of these melodies are in sharp keys - no problem for Suzuki students but unusual for those using a typical book one 'band' method.
