Beginner Flute Lesson 5 - First Note! D

Despite its title, this book is anything but simple. Debost introduces descriptive, often complicated techniques for breathing, blowing, and phrasing on the flute, and many of these will be useful even to seasoned performers. A few entries are aimed at younger players or their teachers, but the majority of the concepts and techniques described in this book are much too complicated for beginners. Even if the reader is unfamiliar with Debost's background, it is apparent early in The Simple Flute that he was trained in France and is an advocate of the French school of flute playing.

The Simple Flute: From A to Z by Michel Debost, Hardcover | Barnes & Noble®

In his entry on the "Paris Conservatoire and the French School," Debost writes of the French training where "students' schedules are not cluttered with nonmusical topics—endless papers to write and so forth" p. Few American music programs advocate such a performance-centric focus, so this pedagogical approach may be new to many American flutists. Throughout The Simple Flute, I found many techniques and concepts that would be advantageous for intermediate, advanced, and professional flutists.

Debost devotes a section to dealing with physical symptoms of stress while performing.

He frequently addresses concepts of efficiency, especially tips applicable to muscle groups, fingerings, and breathing techniques. For example, Debost advocates using the strong leg muscles, rather than weaker facial muscles, to affect pitch, dynamics, and quality of tone.

He also puts forth a method of interpretation to assist in phrasing musical works.

Drawing from his highly praised French work, Une simple flute , distinguished flutist and teacher Michel Debost has compiled a useful and imaginative introduction to playing the flute.

This alphabetically arranged compendium of advice and insight covers essential topics such as breathing, articulation, and tone, but also explores "jawboning," "finger phrasing," "the little devils," and other quirky and vexing aspects of flute playing. Full of practical advice on technique and axioms that lend moral support during tough practice sessions, The Simple Flute will be a welcome addition to any serious or novice flutist's library.

In addition, the book includes original exercises such as "Debost's Scale Game," making it an excellent resource for flute teachers. Debost concludes each essay with "In a nutshell" and "Please refer to" boxes that make the book easy to browse, dog-ear, and return to again and again. Offering concise, common-sense solutions for flutists of all levels, this book is an ideal reference guide on flute performance. Customer Reviews Average Review.
