Very fleeting visit... my flute student (who passed G5 in the Spring) has got to the stage where I think it would benefit her both in terms of tone and in terms of stretching her imagination when it comes to the flute and what it can do to play around with some extended techniques.
We've used singing+playing as a warm up and tone improver for a while, and we have touched on harmonics, but I'd really like to give her something that used extended techniques in a piece of music she would enjoy so that there is a point! If that makes sense.
I also have some duets - I forget the title, but something like double the fun? - but all the solo stuff I have (basically Ian Clarke stuff though I also have the book by He Who Shall Not Be Named and a couple of others that touch on harmonics) that uses extended techniques would be too hard especially when she's just starting A Levels too!
I'm going to try and write something but would value any ideas people had for pre-existing stuff that might suit.
So, any ideas? Not too hard for a G5 level player... my preference at the moment for what I want us to experiment with would be things like timbral trills, alternative fingerings, unusual tone colours and harmonics.
I figure if there are suitable pieces out there someone here is bound to know!
