4.0 out of 5 stars Good beginner's book! 1 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
Bought this for 9 yr old daughter who is being taught to play the flute as her teacher recommended it. The book is easy to understand and introduces a new note every few songs.

Would recommend this book for absolute beginners learning the flute.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warning if you buy the piano book as well 13 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this flute book with piano-accompaniments book, as recommended by Amazon.

The books are beautifully presented, with a good range of composers (e.g. Puccini, John Denver, Strauss, Lionel Bart, Ronnie Hazlehurst, Gershwin, Mozart and Verdi), as well as a great selection of traditional melodies from all over the world - the CDs are a nice bonus - but why on earth are the songs in the piano book in a completely different order to the flute book?!

Buy the flute book, because, for use with a teacher, it is first class, but if you buy the piano book as well be prepared to create a spreadsheet for cross referencing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for flute beginners 9 Nov 2010
By Mags
Format:Paperback
Purchased this for my daughter who's just started flute lessons. Nice and easy to understand, and helps in learning to read music as well as just playing "notes". She can't put it down! - and is starting to write her own songs using proper music notes too! Hopefully the novelty won't wear off too soon...

Some of the diagrams are a little mis-representative of the instrument, but if you've got an ear for notes you'll easily fathom which diagrams aren't entirely accurate and work out which keys the fingers should be covering.

All in all a great starter book that has sparked my 8 yr olds' interest in music further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended by music teacher. 13 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter recently started to learn to play the flute and this was recommended by her teacher. She uses it all the time ( including during her flute lesson at school). It seems easy to follow and she has picked up learning to read the music quickly. A great book that will last her for a while too as the music towards the end is a lot more advanced.
