This comprehensive method for beginner to advanced players is specially designed for use in private lessons. It includes fingering exercises, scale exercises, and etudes, together with advanced techniques and concepts such as harmonics, vibrato, trills, interpretation, and phrasing.

A chapter called “Representative Literature” contains exemplary flute music and photographs of flutes from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary periods giving students a broad historical perspective of both flute literature and the development and use of various types of flutes.
