125 Easy Classical Studies for Flute (Part 1 & 2)

The files within this Zip are a collection of Band in a Box files worked from a study book in my possession called “125 Easy classical studies for Flute”.(Universal Edition UE 16042) The files are worked around classical flute studies by:-

  • Francois Devienne
  • Louis Drouet
  • Anton Bernard Furstenau
  • Giuseppe Gariboldi
  • Antoine Hugot
  • Johann George Wunderlich
  • Ernesto Kohler
  • Charles Nicholson
  • Wilhelm Popp
  • Heinrich Soussmann
  • Johann George Tromlitz

These are a fine collection of studies for the beginner flautist, written by master flautists. They are short and melodic and will hopefully prove to be fun to play along with. I have made no attempt to render these files in a “classical” style since the purpose is to provide a purely enjoyable way for young players to work through the text. If young players work through these files with their own computers,or in a group teaching/learning situation,then I will be well satisfied. As is usual with my files I want to make the point that the original text should be bought!! BB will not notate the melody correctly but should sound reasonably correct (trills are problematic) and I have made no attempt to correct the actual notation. (The music will go out of print if nobody buys it so BUY THE STUDY BOOK!) I can make no claim to harmonic mastery but I hope that these “work-horse” arrangements will render practice more enjoyable for our younger flautists. (The melody is only stated once with all the files and then continues with accompaniment alone)
