The Top Octave Book: Playing with Artistry (Studies)
The Top Octave Book: Playing with Artistry (Studies) By Patricia George, Published By Theodore Presser Company.
Have you ever said, “I love my top octave?” If you are like most flute and piccolo players, the answer is no. The Top Octave Book is a methodical approach to playing with control and artistry in the third register. With exercises to develop the embouchure, conquer the fingering combinations, and develop control of the air stream, this book culminates with Barret’s 40 Progressive Melodies transposed up an octave, along with phrasing suggestions, to develop artistry and fluidity in the top register
