Method books for adult beginner

Post by audri » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:21 pm

Any recommendations for method books for adult beginner?

I'm looking at a few and wondering what might be best:
- The Boosey Woodwind Method for flute
- Abracadabra Flute
- Beginner's Book for the Flute (Trevor Wye)
- Rubank method book
- Flute 101: Mastering the Basics (Louke & George)
Would like to hear your thoughts.

These are good. Either would be suitable. Trevor Wye has a series of books that allow you to progress naturally. Each book introduces new material for you to master in an orderly fashion.
