This work is designed to offer flute students and their instructors a less traditional, chamber music setting of the standard concert etude. Gradually progressing in difficulty, each etude focuses on handling various technical demands while challenging the players to maintain solid musicanship and expression, all within the context and discipline of ensemble performance.
