Extended Techniques

Posted on: April 25, 2009

Flute Talk is a great magazine, but it seems to me that their recent issues have been exceptionally excellent. The March 2009 issue contains an article by Alexis Del Palazzo titled “Teaching with Extended Flute Techniques” that discusses the benefits (such as tone development) of exploring extended techniques (such as harmonics, vocalization, and whistle tones) with younger players.

I appreciated the mention of numerous resources in the article and thought I would post a few links to them here:

The article points out that studying extended techniques as a beginning/intermediate student doesn’t have to be difficult; on the contrary, it can be quite fun, and in addition to developing tone, it can open up the mind to a wider variety of tone color possibilities.
