      Every flautist should have one

      I am a flute teacher and this is the essential guide to where you should put each finger to make a note.

      It ranges all the way from a bottom B if you have a B foot head joint to the top D. You can play two semitones higher than that but you dont really ever get any pieces where this is needed.

      It shows how to do each note really clearly, it makes it a great little finger chart for younger players.

      In each lesson that I teach I always have this on the stand behind the music, and if the pupil doesnt know how to do a fingering, I get them to look it up and see if they can work it out themselves before I show them on my flute. Its an excellent teaching tool and as its so easy to read and is only a few pages long then my pupils are happy to use it over and over again.

      It is suitable for beginners right through to late intermediate. By advanced you shouldnt really need it anymore but you could still keep it as a reference.

      My copy was bought from amazon for a few pounds, but good music shops should stock it as well.

      The cover is blue with a picture of a flute on the front, its quite an old publication but flute fingers havent changed for hundreds of years so it doesnt really matter. If you are thinking of teaching yourself the flute this goes well with the Abracadabra flute book for beginners.
