Abracadabra Flute is perhaps the most popular beginner book with flute teachers in schools across the UK. Fun pieces introduce you to your new flute in an interesting way and the book leads you to become ultimately a competent grade 3 standard flautist.
Fun array of pieces
Abracadabra Flute leads you through a series of exciting short pieces, introducing you gradually to new notes as you become ready to develop your skills. The book is filled with a wide variety of solos and duets including traditional folk songs and nursery rhymes such as Old MacDonald and Hot Cross Buns, as well as arrangements of well-known classical themes, including the New World Symphony and Surprise Symphony – if you work through all the pieces in this book, you will no doubt be a fantastic flautist in no time! This edition of the book also includes two corresponding CDs which not only contain performance tracks so you can hear how the pieces should sound but also piano accompaniments and full orchestra backing tracks for practice and performance – why not impress your family and friends with a professional performance of what you have learnt in the comfort of your own home!
Rhythm, dynamics and time signatures are clearly marked throughout the book so that you can develop your musical awareness as you play through the pieces. Amongst the 132 short pieces through this book, 17 are warm-up exercises, encouraging you to learn and practice in the most productive way.
The back of the book contains a list of all the ABRSM scales and arpeggios for the grades 1, 2 & 3 flute exams alongside a useful glossary of musical terms to which you can refer back to as you play more pieces.
