Tom, for great flute pieces with amazing piano parts, my favorites are: - the Liebermann Sonata - the Burton Sonatina - Schumann's Introduction and Variations On A Theme From "Die Schone Mullerin" (the piano and flute take turns being the "soloist" in the variations... odd variations is one, even va...

I'd like to add -- practice these with a tuner. The tendency is for the pitch to go flat as you get softer... so watch the tuner as you decrescendo and try to counteract that tendency with extra support and gradually aiming the airstream a bit higher.

My teacher did wonders helping me learn to stand/play/hold the flute correctly and now, when I feel pain, I know it's because I'm doing something wron...

Try using a metronome and going through the exercises very slowly, gradually increasing the metronome marking as you have success. If you've been on these...
