The trio of this German dance is also called ‘The sleigh ride’. Imagine you are skating on the ice. Snow all around you. Since it is not really possible to imitate bells on the flute, I used wind sounds and flutter tongue to make the trio of this dance extra special.

In the original piece the beautiful melody is accompanied by the pizzicato playing of the strings. In this arrangement I tried to copy the pizzicato feel with pizzicato on the flute. The alto flute part and the bass flute part are the same. If necessary one can be left out.
Vivaldi wrote a lot of beautiful music. A while ago I came across this piece and decided to arrange it one day. I tried to capture the soft and fragile accompaniment with wind sounds. The solo flute has many possibilities to flourish.
In this arrangement of the minuet from the toy symphony the toys are replaced by extended techniques. It can be played as a trio, quartet or even with a flute choir. Make sure we can hear the extended techniques!
Practise extended techniques with friends. This arrangement of Schubert’s Rosamunde can be played with flute choir (4 C-flutes, alto flute and bass). You can work on wind sounds, singing & playing, tongue stops and jet whistle. A good workout for activating the abdomen, flexible embouchure and a lot more.
This is the first arrangement for flute choir the Flute Colors way! It is amazing what happens when you hear a complete flute choir play pizzicato on the flute. A very nice effect and very useful to practise the co-ordination of the tongue and abdomen. You can also play the first flute part as a solo if you don’t have a flute choir to perform this piece with.
