 Saltarello

This piece feels like playing a game. Two to four players play one melody and make it sound like one player is playing the melody. A great challenge and a lot of fun. Adding extended techniques like tongue stops, wind sounds, flutter tongue and key clicks makes it complete. Good luck!

 Kol Dodi

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.

 Wolfs – Playalong with Youtube

Playalong with Youtube. Very nice to use as a warming up exercise and energizer for workshops or just to start your daily routine. The wind sounds and tone bending challenge the embouchure to become really flexible and the key clicks are nice for rhythm and a precise finger movement.
