A Flute Colors arrangement of the Irish traditional in two versions! One for 4 C-flutes and one for 2 C-flutes, alto flute and bass flute. Have fun with tone bending, wind sounds, pizzicato and jetwhistles. A nice addition if you want to play with more colors, work on your sound, support and co-ordination of tongue and abdomen.
Three variations on a staccato study by Giuseppe Gariboldi. The first variation helps you to increase the support, the second variation helps you to develop a precise finger movement and the third variation helps you to increase the co-ordination between the tongue and abdomen. Three steps to get more results and a better staccato playing.
Add some extra colors to this song. Even if you just started to play the flute you can play this piece with friends. The tongue stops, pizzicato and jet whistle help you to develop the co-ordination between the tongue and abdomen. The wind sounds make your embouchure very flexible and that way you can improve your sound.
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.
Deck the hall with pizzicato! Playing the first line challenges you to make it sound like you are playing two lines at ones. Once you get the hang of it, it will make you feel like a true master. Play with or without accompaniment.
This arrangement can be played as a trio or as a duet! You can sing part two and three and play or combine them. Part one focusses on pizzicato playing. Very useful for increasing co-ordination between the tongue and abdomen. You can play with or without accompaniment.
Working on better legato playing, better co-ordination of the tongue and abdomen, working on a better decrescendo and crescendo technique. Just a few of the benefits of studying this version of Köhlers famous study. If you work on this version alongside the original version you will gain more control. And more control equals better playing. Have fun!
