    I don't know many intermediate students who could possibly play (and excecute correctly) most of the advanced solo piccolo orchestral excerpts included in this book. I completely disagree that the entirety of this book could be classified as "early intermediate" by the previous person posting a review! I used...

    this book throughout college and still use it now, fifteen years later for my own practice as well as with my advancing students. It is a very useful, intelligently organized and written book (as are all of the Trevor Wye practice books for the flute.) This is a great tool.

    This practice book is HUGE, so lots of bang for you buck. It has very good simple exercises as well as lots of real excerpts from classical works. Really highlights how the piccolo is different from other flute instruments and how to address those differences to improve your playing.
