In presenting this book I wish to introduce to the flautist in the ealier stages of learning to play the idea of serious technical practice. There are in existence many useful exercises for the more advanced player. My hope is that these exercises will encourage the pupil to work in such a way that will make easier and more enjoyable the foundation of a good technique. For this reason they are short and writtern our in eighth notes. of course they shoudl supplement a good flute method or tutor and be used under the guidance of a teacher.
