The Fife Book by Liz Goodwin
The fife book method teaches embouchure technique, breath control and basic fingerings, on a plastic side-blown flute (not included).
Composer’s Notes: “……. The purpose of this book is an introductory course to flute playing. For many years now I have used this method to introduce people of all ages to flute playing and now I would never start anyone in any other way. Over the years I have heard all of the arguments against it – but they have all proved unfounded. I would suggest you approach it with an open mind and discover the potential for yourself.”
The book is aimed at beginners and should last for an approximate 10-week period. It is not intended to be a “self-tutor” and it should be used with a teacher. Most of the material is very simple and although recorder players might find they can whizz through the tunes very quickly, I do find that it takes this amount of time to start to establish a good embouchure, hand positions and posture. The ten-week period can of course be extended for younger children or slower learners…….” – Liz Goodwin
