    This Klezmer flute book has interesting songs. However, the song 7:40 is mostly in the high register and does not work well for flute; this should have been transcribed for middle octave. Also, in my opinion, the melodies are not very challenging; for a more challenging Klezmer flute book...

    , get the All Time Klezmers by Joachin Johow.

    I love this book! The songs are not too easy and not too hard, which makes it very enjoyable to play.
