    Following on from Volume 1, the six etudes in Volume 2 (1986) further develop the stylistic possibilities that a multiphonic flutist can explore.  These etudes touch on minimal music, quasi-serial music and end with a full blown “electric Blues” in the style of Jimi Hendrix!  Your listeners will be floored!

  • Dick, Robert – Flying Lessons: 6 Contemporary Concert Etudes, Vol. 1

    Flutists spend a lot of time practicing etudes, but rarely perform them because most etudes simply are not good enough as music to play for people. My compact with every flutist willing to do the work to learn Flying Lessons is that you will have music you can play in your concerts – and audiences dig this stuff! You will hear, again and again, I never imagined a flute could sound like this. It’s wonderful!

    These short pieces, composed in 1983, use multiphonics, glissandi, percussive sonorities, singing with playing and other extended techniques in an original, lyric style. Clearly notated with accurate, easily readable fingerings.

    A wonderful opportunity to study and perform the newest techniques in
    multiphonics. The Flutist Quarterly.

  • Dick, Robert – The Other Flute

    $49.95
  • Dick, Robert – Tone Development Through Extended Techniques

    Daily studies designed to enable the flutist to produce optimum resonance and to develop the embouchure strength and sensitivity to confidently play multiphonics, whisper tones, natural harmonics and other extended timbres while simultaneously developing the beauty, power, color and control of the tone for traditional music. An important feature is the unique presentation of “throat tuning” — a breakthrough technique for tone development.

  • Jeanjean, Paul – Études Modernes Pour Flute [Modern Studies for Flute]

    Modern Studies for the Flute is a set of sixteen studies by Paul Jeanjean (1874-1928). Composed in 1868, and initially composed for clarinet, these studies would fit advanced players. Each one of these Modern Studies is 3 or 4 pages long and extremely technically challenging. They all require strong attention, good endurance and they could be used to prepare the player for combinations of chords and rhythmic figures of contemporary music. Paul Jeanjean (1874-1928) is a French composer known for his clarinet compositions. He also composed ‘Vade-Mecum of the Clarinet Player,’ ‘Arabesques’ and ‘Clair Matin.’
