Fun with the Headjoint

Fun with the Headjoint


When you are brand new and have just started playing the flute, one of the most difficult things is to get a good sound out of the flute, while at the same time you have to learn to hold the instrument.


These head joint melodies are therefore written for all the new young flutists, so that they can explore the head joint and find a good sound before they have to assemble the flute completely.


In this compendium you come across many different sounds such as dark sounds, bright sounds, wind sounds and octaves. It gives the students a good feel for how to produce sounds on the flute and makes it enormously easier when you have to assemble the flute completely.


There are several different approaches to the melodies. Some are pure composition games, others the student has to come up with sounds to match pictures. Some can be played as trios and others are completely simple melodies of 8 beats divided by bars like a melody written with sheet music.


All melodies have an element of graphic notation, some have a completely free rhythm and other melodies are a note value associated with a specific image.


There are six different types of tasks with themes that suit either a season or a holiday. All six types of tasks are described on the following pages. A video has been made for several of the melodies that you can play along with.
