This unique book includes a fingering chart, information in performance technique, style, rhythm conventions, ornaments, and history - plus an analysis of Mr. Nakais role in contemporary Native American culture. All exercises, solos, and duets with Boehm flute and E flat alto sax are written in standard notation.
