  • 2008-01-08 00:00:00.0 Good resource, but no slurs, dynamics

    I use this book with students (3rd year and up), and they like the songs, but there are some challenges. First, this book is not in the keys that young flutists are comfortable in (flat keys); this is an advantage for teachers looking for materials in sharp keys! Second, there...

    are no dynamics or slurs, so you have to either add your own or (better yet) develop them with the student. I am willing to bet that this material is copied directly from a fiddle book, with the only concession being that it doesn't go lower than middle C. Instead of simply transposing the songs into B flat or F, they have been put up a whole octave, so some of them are quite high! Oddly, only page 28 has guitar the flute part.

    I found it difficult to figure out what each of the songs sound like but that is mostly due to my poor sight reading ability. If this book came with a CD so that you could hear each song it would be a 5 star book. Unfortunately it doesn't...

    and there is no way to tell how fast each piece is to be played so in the end you have to just guess and that detracts from the enjoyment of the music. My $.02
