Written in easy-to-read short chapters, 6 WEEKS TO FINALS is a clearly organized system for flutists to prepare and train musically and mentally for auditions. Sharon Sparrow, a flutist in the Detroit Symphony, has taken countless auditions herself, understands the rigors of preparation and the state of mind necessary for success. This textbook guides flutists through the all-important process behind a successful audition.
The first volume of this series of three, while applicable to any student, is directed chiefly to the beginner who has already mastered some of the rudiments of music and is able physically and mentally to devote the time and energy required to learn the techniques of the instrument itself.
Volume One of this series should have helped the student develop excellent practice habits and a certain degree of dexterity. Now, to stimulate continued progress, daily studies should be spiced with a liberal number of solos and additional study aids. A little music theory will enhance the hard labor of technique development.
