"This lovely book from Rod Seed is unique. All seven exercises challenge and develop flexibility, and all have music at their heart. The purpose of each one is clearly explained, has a warm up to get you started and is printed in all the keys possible. For example, Hommage to Poulenc is designed to improve control of the Cantilena, Bach-ercise uses harmonics to outline Bach's famous Prelude in C major, Bach-ticulation is a real workout for blowing, articulation and fingerwork and the simple melody used in Singing and Playing cleverly encourages us to experiment with this technique. There are plenty of warm-up and tone development books on the market but none is quite like this!" - Christine Hankin, Just Flutes (2023)
