Larry Krantz Flute Pages: Scale Practice Routine - James Galway
Scale Practice Routine:
suggested by James Galway
at the 1997 NFA Flute Convention - Chicago

  • ABOVE: first 5 note pattern in C Major.
  • Play as smoothly as possible without accenting any notes.
  • Play with your best possible sound on each note.
  • Begin slowly and gradually speed up over time as your technique improves.
  • Continue up the range of the flute with each consecutive 5 note pattern.
  • Continue the same approach in ALL keys - plan on investing lots of time to each key.

Thanks to James Galway for allowing this page to be published.
