Team Woodwind Flute is one of the most popular beginner books amongst flute teachers across the UK. It takes you right from the beginning and teaches you how to play the flute through a fun array of pieces – complete with backing CD’s to make learning the flute really fun!
Start from the beginning
Before you start playing, Team Woodwind Flute introduces you to your new instrument and has clear illustrations of how to put your flute together and how to hold it.
Fun array of pieces
Team Woodwind Flute then leads you through 75 short exciting pieces, introducing you to new notes with clear fingering diagrams as you become ready to develop your skills. These pieces cover both the traditional and classical styles, with titles such as Amazing Grace and Edelweiss and the Theme from the New World Symphony (Dvorjak) and Ode to Joy (Beethoven). There is also a supplement booklet (included) that encourages you to experiment with your new flute with your teacher and woodwind friends through exciting solos and duets.
Play along to the backing CD or with your friends
2 backing CD’s are included with Team Woodwind Flute which contain both performance tracks so that you can hear how the pieces should sound and backing tracks to play along to - making learning the flute really fun! Team Woodwind Flute is also compatible with the other ‘Team Woodwind’ instrument books - allowing you to build an ensemble with your fellow woodwind playing friends!
Develops your technique
Fun speech bubbles throughout Team Woodwind Flute introduce you to basic music theory and musicianship as you progress. Rhythms, Time Signatures, Repeat Indications and 'playing by ear' exercises are introduced and explained in a fun and encouraging way with scales and arpeggios to help you understand the concept of keys.
At the front of Team Woodwind Flute there is a really useful “lesson diary & practice chart” so that you can see your progress and structure your practice successfully. There is also a useful full glossary of all the ABRSM scales and arpeggios at the end of the book to help prepare you for your first flute exam.
If you work through all the pieces in this book, you will no doubt be a fantastic flautist in no time!
