Flute Course of Study

Studio of Becky Weidman

The following is a selected list of studies and repertoire for the college flute major
categorized by freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, and graduate levels. All scales and
technical exercises will be taught as listed, while the list of etudes, and solo repertoire are
intended to give only an estimate of the level and type of music to be learned in each year of
college study. At the beginning of each year one method book will be assigned to each level,
freshman, sophomore, etc. Solos and ensemble music will be decided collectively by the student
and teacher, based on the student’s pedagogical needs.
