A study is designed to work on a specific part of flute playing. This particular study focuses on staccato playing and thus the movement of the tongue in combination with air and support. Practice legato first to keep the airflow going, then practice key clicks for precise finger movement, then practice pizzicato to strengthen finger and tongue coordination, and finally play staccato as written.

Een etude is ontworpen om te werken aan een specifiek onderdeel van het fluitspel. Deze specifieke studie richt zich op staccato spelen en dus de beweging van de tong in combinatie met lucht en ademsteun. Oefen eerst legato om de luchtstroom gaande te houden, oefen dan key clicks voor nauwkeurige vingerbewegingen, oefen dan pizzicato om de vinger- en tongcoördinatie te versterken, en speel ten slotte staccato zoals genoteerd.
