Technical Flexibility for Flutists
Gilbert, G

A book of skillfully organized daily practice routines for the flute. A versatile yet practical teaching tool for students of all levels.

From the author:

'It is customary to ascribe the origin of a book of this kind to some impetus or motivating factor provided by the advice of a dear friend or family member. In this case nothing could be farther from the truth! It owes its origin solely to the disastrous summer in England in 1986.

Incarcerated for a few weeks in an Elizabethan cottage in an isolated village in the Cotswolds and tiring of alternately reading books, watching the weather forecasts and listening to the constant patter of the rain from the eaves, I was forced to search for some interesting way to employ my time during an almost endless succession of depressing days. Had the weather been a little kinder, it is doubtful if this collection of scales and exercises would ever have seen the light of day. However I am sure it would have benefited my golf game.

The scale sections can be used in many different ways to suit the individual needs of the student or teacher, perhaps on the basis of one page per day or if that is too much, one page per week. I have used them in my own flute classes at the rate of one per week and this seemed to bring satisfactory results.

The exercises on page 53 are based on passages from well-known pieces in the orchestral repertoire and I hope they will be found to be useful preparatory studies.'
