For the beginner Flute student:
Trevor Wye’s beginner’s book for the flute is an excellent tutor book for students of all ages. The general approach of this series is enjoyment of flute playing and music making in the broadest sense. All keys are used to provide familiarity which in turn results in easier access to orchestras and ensembles. The low register is explored as the foundation to a good tone throughout the compass of the flute. Many of the pieces contained can be played as solo, duets, solo with piano, or duet with piano.M
For the more serious Flute student: Trevor Wye's famous practice books for the flute are invaluable to players of every grade, and have received world wide acclaim. This omnibus edition contains practice books 1-5, which includes Tone; Technique; Articulation; Intonation and Vibrato; Breathing and Scales. Each book concentrates on individual areas of flute technique in concise detail. Together, the series forms a complete reference to the technical difficulties of the instrument and how to practice.
For the Saxophone student: Every note written on a piece of music corresponds with a fingering on the saxophone. The notes on the staff will tell you which notes to play and consequently which fingers to use. In beginner books, the fingering is often written out for the student each time a new note is introduced. They also often include a fingering chart in the book, normally on the first or last page. Each darkened circle represents a key that is to be pushed down. Sometimes this is done with a finger or your palm. Sometimes both! These charts can also be purchased separately to keep on the stand as a reference.

Practice Tip of the Week: February 19, 2024:
Do plan a specific time to practice each day. Students who practice at the same time each day usually make better progress than those who wait several days before a practice session. Music practice easily becomes a low priority item placed at the end of a busy day of school, homework and extracurricular activities. The student is then too tired to concentrate. When practice time becomes a structured routine, it can be perceived as a relaxation or fun time to be looked forward to.
Whether you are just starting out for the first time or honing old skills, A Sharp’s woodwind and reed department is patient, professional, fun, friendly and reliable. In a lesson you will learn how to read and write music, or just quickly learn to play your favourite songs.
