The Young Flute Player BOOK 6
This method book is written specifically for adult learners & teenage learners and contains everything they need for a great start in playing the flute.
There are 30 progressive units, with new material introduced gradually. The scales are related directly to the pieces, and the exercises help students practise new material, or prepare the difficult sections of a piece.
There is a wide range of music by composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Bartok and Dvorak, plus traditional tunes from around the world. The arrangements include solos, duets and pieces with optional piano accompaniment (piano parts in Book 3).
In addition to pieces, exercises and recordings, The Young At Heart Flute Player also features:
- Easy-to-read fingering charts for every note of the flute
- Photo guides for assembling the flute and cleaning the flute
- Manuscript paper
- Scales charts

Adult beginners may also enjoy playing duets and trios from the yellow ensemble book (The Young Flute Player Book 4), and can progress to the red tutor book (The Young Flute Player Book 2) after they finish The Young at Heart Flute Player.
