This beginning duet books opens with Hot Cross Buns and
progressives to rhythms that include eighth notes and a range that extends from
low E to the D above the staff. It includes much great literature for the first
years of playing. The first part of each of the 40 duets is written for the
student. The second flute part is more difficult, and is intended for the
teacher or more advanced flutists. The results are a much more satisfying musical
experience than is found in most beginning duet books. Some of the melodies
are taken from the award-winning Blocki Flute Method Book I student book, but
most introduce new melodies and are an excellent choice for recital pieces.
Also included are four trios that work well for an excellent first ensemble
Includes: Jingle Bells, Go Tell Aunt Rhody, O Come
Little Children, Chanukah, Dreidle, Renaissance Dance, Bransle, Hatikvah, The
Holly and the Ivy, Cherry Blossom Song, Shalom, Oh! When the Saints, The Ash
Grove, Martini Gavotte.....
