The Blocki Flute Method Book I is an award-winning method designed to the give beginner an excellent foundation in beautiful tone, embouchure flexibility, rhythm and technique. This comprehensive and step-by-step approach was written to ensure success and also includes theory and composition projects. The book is spiral bound and the 86 pages are a complete beginning method in one book.  (Some beginning books  have a set of books that are about 30 pages each.

  • Begins with several pages of head joint exercises to develop great tone before balancing the whole flute.
  • Emphasizes flexibility between octaves
  • Large print makes it easier to learn note reading.
  • Five-note patterns are used to quickly develop technique
  • Fun composition pages reinforce what the student is learning. Ex. After learning eighth notes a composition project of Theme and Variations on Yankee Doodle is used to reinforce the concept of changing between quarter and eighth notes.

Tone and Flexibility

The method is designed so students can play in both octaves without having to read the notes in both octaves. This is an incredibly important aspect of teaching beginners. Teaching flute is not like teaching trumpet in which the high notes are more difficult. High notes become difficult when students only play in the low and middle octaves for as much as one year. The students then have trouble with embouchure flexibility, and the ability to form a smaller lip opening.

The Blocki Flute Method’s unique approach to teaching Five-Note patterns has proven to consistently help even the youngest students develop exceptional technical abilities.  Five-note patterns are used as the foundation for teaching new notes, technique, moving between beat levels, simple transposition and fun and easy ear training.
