Leise rieselt der Schnee (the snow trickles softly). A nice melody to practise whistle tones. You can also play this arrangement as a trio. Not only the snow will trickle softly, the sound of the flutes should be very softly too. Whistle tones are very useful to relax the embouchure and work an a good and steady breath control.
