Practising scales and arpeggios on the flute can seem like to be a compulsory exercise, if this is the case, then Groove Connection, is the answer for you. This tried and tested concept features exciting musical workouts for players of all levels. Start your lessons and practice by brushing aside monotony and getting into the Groove! This approach is rooted in the principles of music education. Composer Klaus Dickbauer uses the pleasure of playing the instrument as the basis for learning.
• New proven concept for individual, group and ensemble classes
• Major scales and arpeggios for warms-ups, tone development and rhythmic training for players of all ages
• Play-along CD – a great motivator for practising at home
The series introduces elements of music-making such as major scales and arpeggios while putting them in context with performance pieces and improvisations. Technical development becomes a means of personal expression. Students and teachers can use the recordings to practise in pairs, groups, ensembles, individual lessons and, of course, at home, where the play-along CD replaces the other players.
Klaus Dickbauer’s Groove Connection is a useful resource that can be used flexibly to lay solid theoretical and practical foundations for improvising. (...)
