to play from the Jessica Walsh Celtic and World/Renaissance
books DUETS with the CD for at home practice, or at flute
Music for Flute [with CD] by Jessica Walsh
Playalong Method: Playalong Method:
Start the CD that comes with the book, and alternate with the recorded flutist. When they play the Melody, you play the variation. 'Variation' is usually clearly marked on the music; you can write Flute 2 start there in pencil.
while the flutist on the CD plays the opening melody you can play the Variation, or you can play drones, or unison.
When the CD flutist reaches the 'Variation', that you've already played, you meanwhile zoom up to the top of the page, and start playing from the start of the piece; the melody.
The following pieces all work this way unless otherwise marked.
How to play as a duet without CD:
First flute plays as written.
Second flute plays drones (based on chord symbols) until first flutist reaches "Variation".
Then second flute plays the top of the page (melody) while flute one plays variation.

played along with the CD.
The following title sounds similar to the first book listed
above, but is not the same book. Celtic
Music for FLUTE AND GUITAR [see cover],
is not included as a book to have duets made out of it, as the
flute and guitar parts are already fully written out and have
a more complex interweaving already. The above book with
"guitar" in the title is also published as
"flute and piano" with a newly written piano part,
and not to be confused with the simpler chord-symbol only
arrangements found in book number one above: Celtic

. I recommend these books because I ADORE them, as do all my
students, children and adults, and, of course, not because I'm
in any way related to the company or composers. Jen Cluff.
