Larry Krantz Flute Pages: Flute Pieces List

Flute Repertoire List
This list contains 246 pieces in seven different categories of difficulty from easiest (level 1) to most difficult (level 7). These pieces are graded according to my personal opinion. Even I can not agree with myself as to which difficulty level all of the pieces should be most appropriately placed. Please take the list and use it if you think it useful. Just click on the level to go to that area.
