A group of twelve flute duets in a jazz/ragtime style. They are at an intermediate level, and very appealing to flute students. A good avenue for introducing students to syncopated rhythms.

    This 12-piece book is a delightful introduction to ragtime for flutists, who usually don't get the chance to play much jazz or "rag" music. What I perhaps enjoy most about the book is, the 2nd flute part has many chances for nice melodic interplay or fun walking bass lines to accompany the 1st flute. (Unlike many duet books that have a rather stagnant bass line for the 2nd flute/accompaniment.)If you are playing with students who are new to the territory, it is a great book to have them develop an ear for jazz chords. You'll need to review how to swing eighths, since that isn't covered here --it's for Intermediate players after all :). The lines should not be incredibly challenging though, and it is presented in such a way that whether up or down tempo, it's still fun to play. I did like playing most of the pieces up-tempo, though!My top favorite pieces are #5- "Forget-Me-Not", #6 - "Cotton Candy Rag", #11 - "High Country Stomp" (it's nice got a nice lilting feel) and #12- "Green Mountain Saunter." There is a great variety, and each piece has a memorable melody. Grab a flutist friend and play these! If you like to have up-beat and playful tunes (especially during these cold winter months) these will warm you up real fast.

    As a flute teacher, I watch for new and interesting music for my students. These Rags are terrific! They are harmonically and musically interesting, introduce a style to the students with which they may be unfamiliar yet has a "jazzy" feel, and are simple enough in range, rhythm and length (they're relatively brief) to be approachable to the intermediate student - a level at which one often needs interesting music to keep them going! - and above. I had one student who is versed in jazz (plays jazz trumpet) who tried to swing these, so I had the opportunity to work with him on how Rags differ from "swung" jazz, which was kind of fun. I feel these duets fill a need in the modern flute studio, and recommend them highly.

    This is Intermediate level music, it can satisfy ,several levels of players, and altho rags come over stylistically the same , these are varied enough . Except for mostly using flat key signatures, and having some confusion in finding your way around repeats and da capos, these are pleasant little works, some of which would make nice concert encores. The only feature I as a performer corrected when my friend and I played them thru was to 8 va some of the too low 2nd parts. Doing tjhis seemed to improve the voicing.SoIn general, nice work,Pat!!Professional Flutist/ performer Jean Antrim

    I love love these books! The music has a new age jazzy feel to it. I like that both duet parts have a melody part to them. A lot of other duets out there make the 2nd flute part rather boring. I also like the order they are written in you can flow through one song to the next without stopping. This is intermediate music and they are great for the advancing student as some notes are written in one measure as flats, then the same sounding note written in the next measure as a sharp. This is good practice for students trying to learn complicated classical pieces such as myself. As a flute player that had ‘left’ the music scene for a few years these rags are a lot of fun to play and are very motivating. You won’t want to put your flute down! Great work Pat, looking forward to see your next book!
