The music of the great masters has long been the object of study by musicians around the world.  Unfortunately, many times the difficulty level makes this music inaccessible to the young musician.  With our new publication, CLASSICS FOR THE YOUNG FLUTE PLAYER, music by Beethoven, Brahms, Clarke, Grieg, Haydn, Strauss, Mozart and Purcell has been arranged in a format that is appropriate for the young instrumentalist.


By simply dropping the accompanying CD into your CD player and selecting the proper CD track to match the music on the page of the book that you want to play, you are immediately able to not only play the music, but also play it with a real concert band accompaniment.  This format provides an excellent opportunity to play the music with an accompaniment that is close in style and sound to the original.  Playing this kind of music is an important part of the complete music education of all students, and will result in a well-rounded appreciation for music of many different styles.  We are sure you will enjoy this new opportunity for music-making!
