Format: Paperback
In my opinion, this is a very good buy for those who are looking to learn the flute, for both young and old, with or without additional instruction, although, I would recommend it, for technique purposes and additional support, especially for young learners. It takes you through the basics of finger positioning, how to support the flute and proper lip postioning, with good pictoral diagrams. Also included is a good basic explanation of music theory, which progresses with each unit, good excercises, basic scales and 'concert pieces', along with several duets to be played with a teacher or someone more advanced in playing the flute. More importantly, it does not progress too quickly. There are also very good hints and tips on each unit on both playing and reading music, and a basic finger chart is also included as a handy quick reference.

Just started learning to play the flute and this was recommended by my teacher. It is excellent, takes you step by step. You can master a few exercises in one lesson which gives you a sense of achievement. I was a little concerned about the date of publication, feeling that it was perhaps a bit "old". Not at all! Once you have a good structure- needed in music- age does not matter.

I bought this book because of the great reviews. It seemed to be just what I was looking for ( and it was). BUT I also purchased the CD to accompany the book, which helps you to know that when you play the flute it actually is sounding as it should be! Together they make learning to play the flute very easy and very enjoyable. I don't worry that I'm not learning correctly because I have the book and CD to refer to. I can take it up in my own time, when I feel like it, without paying £25 per hour for a tutor. Very happy!!!!

Bought for my young daughter, as required by her flute tutor. If it's any good or not I have no idea (though my daughter can now play pretty well).

I'm only giving it 3 stars though because I believe they need to make it MUCH clearer which version is which. This version is for those learning the flute - the title 'Tutor Book' suggested to me this might have been for those teaching the instrument instead.

I am an adult taking up the flute just because i fancy it! Good book for a beginner. I would say that you need to have a basic knowledge of reading music but other than that very clear and easy to understand. I would get the newer book with the CD though as it would be more useful and similar in price.

Excellent start for any person wishing to learn how to play the flute along with proper tuition. Not really something you can just pick up and understand - you need either musical knowledge yourself or someone who can guide you through really.
