This is a creative, yet concrete approach that will encourage consistent practice and memorization of scales while at the same time help to improve counting and rhythm skills. A great resource for teachers and students! --Linda Lukas, San Francisco Symphony
This well-thought-out and handsomely produced 48-page book presents scale patterns in a progressive order with a variety of rhythms, articulations, scale fragments, and chord patterns to assure that the student masters the difficulties of each key before proceeding. (I especially like the use of the little [heart] symbol for those basic scale forms that need to be learned by heart.) Beginning with one and then two-octave scale material, Shim stresses the importance of tracking your progress with a metronome in the spaces provided, and she revisits the scales in A major/F# minor, Bb major/G minor, C major/A minor in order to work on gradually mastering the third octave, applying repeated rhythmic patterns, and the chunking of finger patterns that need to be ingrained for further progress in speed and control. She also returns to emphasize two and three-octave scales in the remaining key signatures. The book ends with a comprehensive review of chromatic scales, full-range major/minor scales, and arpeggios. A clear and accurate fingering chart is included. This book is an excellent prelude to the Taffanel et Gaubert 17 Daily Studies or the Trevor Wye Complete Daily Studies. --Jerrold Prichard, The Flute Network

The format and spacing is kid-friendly and not at all intimidating, and the range is perfect for a junior high or young high school student who's still getting to know the instrument. This is a standard text in my studio!
