Editorial Reviews

Review

"A good, clearly written and practical modern method and text for learning to play the one-keyed flute. . . . Overtime this modern method surely will take its place in flute history alongside those distinguished predecessors."--"The Flute Network

From the Inside Flap

"Boland's clear, accessible text reflects years of professional experience as a performer and teacher of the one-key flute. Her book answers all the practical needs of beginners and offers advanced flutists a wealth of useful information. Even players wedded to the Boehm flute will gain fresh musical insights from Boland's comprehensive method."—Laurence Libin, Department of Musical Instruments, Metropolitan Museum of Art

"This is the best introduction to the one-key (baroque) flute for Boehm system flute players available today. With her comprehensive knowledge of the numerous historical treatises and tutors and her extensive practical experience as a player and teacher, Jan Boland has fashioned a guide that is at the same time informative and enjoyable. I only wish it had been available when I set out to learn the one-key flute. It would have saved me much time and led me directly to the most important sources."—John Thow, composer and Professor of Music at the University of California, Berkeley

"An easy-to-read format, clear prose, attractive graphics, and well chosen and very legible music make it an ideal beginner's tutor."—Betty Bang Mather, Professor Emeritus, University of Iowa School of Music

Format: Paperback
The book has great instruction at your fingertips to start learning the one-keyed flute. There is so much here! But it's not bogged down with copious trivia. This book is especially helpful for the Boehm flutist who wishes to transition into some baroque flute playing. When you purchase this volume, you'll have everything you need (apart from the instrument itself!) to get started, and also to avoid injury to your hands and fingers through incorrect position or over-practicing. Wonderful, sound advice clearly presented.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best method books I've seen for a historical instrument. Every essential topic is covered: tuning, intonation, articulation, fingering, baroque & classical ornamentation (fingering for trills off of each note, for instance). Period sources (notably Quantz, plus several others) are quoted frequently. There is also a good discussion on the differences between different historical models. Plus there is a wealth of exercises and tunes from the period. While not pretending to be complete in every sense, this is far superior to many methods I've seen for recorder and other instruments. It's also quite affordable.

Wonderful book.

Excellent exercises and full of history.

I'm not an expert in traverso, but the fingering chart is very complete and ideal for who want to learn by yourself.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book that has become a standard in learning the baroque flute. From care of the instrument to the proper approach to trills and vibrato it is a must for anyone interested in learning how to play one-key flute. I only wish there was a part II.

This book provides a very good introduction to the one-keyed flute. It contains a lot : history, historical playing, fingering, flattement, scales, exercises, songs (mostly from english composers but you can find some Blavet).
