Publisher's Summary

Don’t quite understand how to play the flute? Worry no more! Flute for Beginners is a comprehensive book that delves into the realms of playing the flute. 

The flute is very popular and easy to learn, such that even elementary school students can play the flute. In this book, we would simplify everything flute related in a way that even a beginner will understand. 

Flute for Beginners is a new kind of flute tutor book that combines carefully selected topics every beginner should know. This book is for everyone. It doesn't matter if you are entirely new to playing the flute, or you are seeking to advance your skills. Each chapter contained in this book is self-explanatory to ensure your learning curve increases gradually from beginner through intermediate to advance. 

Unlike many how-to books that make promises upon promises, with this book, you are guaranteed to know how to read music properly, and improve your tone. There is also practical advice which will help you play more easily and more musically. Other critical questions addressed in this book include: 

  • Where do I begin? 
  • How can I improve my tone? 
  • How can I easily transition between notes? 
  • What is the easiest way to learn scales? 

Being self-taught means you're very self-disciplined. As such, it is only reasonable to want to see some form of improvement at the end of the day. With this self-help book you can improve your intonation, articulation, and breathing techniques in no time. 

If you’ve always dreamed of playing the flute but never knew how to get started, now is your chance. Click the "Buy Now" button to start your musical journey today!

Helpful guide

I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. He makes so much sense and really keeps it simple and to the point. He has his own method and he truly makes you think. Instead of buying expensive diets or products, he just reshapes your thinking. I enjoyed the audio version of this!
