For professional and amateur flautists as well as students of the flute, this book offers a practical introduction to all aspects of playing the flute. Using an accessible A-Z format, the author offers a logical and imaginative work on flute performance that places technique at the service of music on every page. In these concise essays, readers will find simple, sensible answers to all of the problems flautists regularly encounter. Debost covers the expected topics - such as breathing, articulation, and tone - and offers personal insights into such issues as "jawboning", "finger phrasing, " and "the little devils."

Definitely a book for the more advanced flutist - but extremely well written, so much so that I'm considering buying a copy of this book as a reference for myself.
