Primary Band Companion

These flexible arrangements are designed for flute students who are in their first year of a band method. Eventually, they will be compiled into a printed collection.
1. Flute: this part is the melody of a familiar primary song or hymn.
2. Flute 2: this duet part is optional. The duet part is at roughly the same level as the solo, so two beginning flutists may easily play a duet together.
3. Accompaniment Piano for Solo or Duet: This part may accompany either the first flute for a solo or both flutes playing a duet. It would also be appropriate while someone sings the melody.
It is my hope that these arrangements will enable young flutists to begin sharing their musical talents in the first few months of study. I will add new songs whenever they are completed. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any suggestions, corrections, special requests for songs, or just to chat about the Primary Band Companion.
