"In writing this method for flute, the author has attempted to bring together all the elements of beginner flute playing, in a simple format with a minimum of text. Twenty-five brilliant, full color photographs clarify the difficulties encountered with the embouchure and the holding of the instrument. The author offers several explanations for the technical elements regarding hand positions, B flat fingerings, articulation, and other topics. Phrase marks and dynamics have been added to some of the pieces, but the majority of these have been left to the discretion of the teacher. The accompanying CD is designed to encourage the awareness of the young flute player by presenting various accompaniment sounds, which have been created on a synthesizer.

''To The Teacher
In writing this book, I have attempted to bring together all the elements of beginner flute playing, in a simple format with the minimum of text. I hope that my suggestions will help both (student and teacher) alike, and that the inclusion of colour photographs will improve the student's understanding of how everything should look.
All the old arguments about hand positions, B flat fingerings and articulation etc. will no doubt continue ad infinitum, so I have presented several explanations for the technical elements. I have put in phrase marks and dynamics in some of the pieces, but the majority I have left to the discretion of the teacher.
The CD which accompanies this book, is designed to encourage the awareness of the young flute player, by listening to various different accompaniment sounds, which have been created on a synthesiser.
I would like to offer my thanks to John, Susanne, Lenore, Andy, Mona, Sebastian, Pat and Jane, for their input and encouragement, Katrin for the drawings, and Brigitte and Rene for their unending patience.
I hope everyone enjoys the finished result. Happy Fluting!
To The Parent
I am often asked about the suitability of the flute for children. This raises the following three points.
1. In the past body size has been a problem for some smaller children. However, since the advent of the curved headjoint, this is no longer the case. Almost all children between the ages of 7-9 can start playing the flute.
2. Because the teeth and jaw playa very important role in woodwind playing, sometimes dental braces can cause difficulties. Some children will be able to play with them in, others not. Of course, straight teeth are always an advantage. You should always tell your dentist of your child's musical interest.
3. When buying a flute, always consult the opinion of a respected player.''
