This book is for someone who can already play the silver flute to some extent. I hope to show you some of the techniques to engage with the sounds of traditional wooden flute, as well as teach you a few tunes along the way. There are lots of my own tunes included which are particularly suited to the silver flute and a few traditional tunes to help illustrate the techniques.
“a wealth of information for silver flute players who wish their instrument to sound more like a traditional wooden flute. There are fingering hints, ideas on breath pressure – this has been deeply thought through and gives really useful practical advice. Indeed, the advice he gives is pertinent to anyone playing this music, not just silver flautists, especially when he goes into detail about playing ornaments, information which could be read with benefit by players of any instrument who wish to get further into this style of playing. It really is an impressive book – as a non-flute player I have found it both entertaining and really useful.” – Living Tradition Magazine
