    I enjoy it for my student as an alternative to the blue Rubank books. Etudes in the back might be slightly difficult for some sudents in early high school, but they still enjoy playing out of it nonetheless.

    Indispensable, well designed exercises. Nevertheless it would be easier to practice if the book binding was more flexible.

    This is the best scales/exercises/etudes book that I have found. Wonderful companion book to go along with method studies for flute students. I am having all of my students get them now.

  • December 25, 2008 A must-have book for flute players

    Very worthwhile book to have, exercises are well put together and makes scales fun and easier to master. Etudes offer challenge while still being nice little pieces for practice or short solo pieces. I love this book!
