I like to think Johann Strauß liked a joke every now and then according to some pieces he wrote. So I think he would have liked this arrangement of his famous waltz. You can play it with one or two flutes and piano. Have fun!
A Flute Colors variation on the very famous piece by Edvard Grieg. If you don’t have an alto and bass flute you can also play the version with flute and piano. Try to make the sound of the pizzicato very ‘dry’ and very precise together and you will sound like a string quartet playing pizzicato.
Singing and playing really can help you to improve your sound. Once you get the hang of it, you will improve. Remember that only working on the techniques, even if it feels you’re unsuccessful, will help you improve. You can adjust the level of this piece. Start by singing and playing simultaneously. Mind the intonation. In the second level sing the second (voice) part and play the flute part. Practise slowly. And for those who need challenge, sing and play the two parts at letter B. After studying the singing and playing, play the piece without singing and notice the difference!
This beautiful melody is perfect for practicing tone bending. You can use this piece as an exercise or play the whole piece. All parts are ad lib. except for the first part. The greatest challenge is to get the intonation right!
This exercise can help you improve your crescendo and decrescendo technique. By practising wind sounds like this you also practise the movement we make while playing a crescendo or decrescendo. Practise this exercise alongside the original version for the best results.
This minuet by mr. Duport was used by Mozart to make variations. Now we can use this theme to practise harmonics. Playing the melody the Flute Colors way will help you to improve your aural skills, support and sound. You can also play together with the piano. Have fun!
