Considered by many as the definitive method for the Flute, Foundation to Flute Playing by Ernest F. Wagner (ca. 1870-1954) has served as the bible and method of choice for generations of musicians studying the Flute. Daniel Schmidt's carefully constructed primer for this basic method presents all the essential information to start a young player off on the right foot. Logically organized, My First Wagner covers overtone studies, attacks, slurring and tonguing, intervals, sustained tones, daily intervals, embouchure development and exercises for developing technique in both hands. It also includes a basic fingering chart, scales and some real concert pieces to be studied when the student has achieved some basic facility (Gavotte - Gossec, Serenade from String Quartet No. 8 - F.J. Haydn, Sicilienne from Pelleas and Melisande - Faure, et. al.). A book designed to improve the technical facility and musicianship of younger players and provide a proper preparation for Wagner's master method, Foundation to Flute Playing.
