In addition to this, you will prepare at least one solo a year, which you can then use in solo and ensemble and/or the Albuquerque Flute Fiesta K-12 competition.

You might not need all of this music- it’s up to you to decide on how much you want to practice and how far you want to go! That’s why it’s just recommended and not required. If you would like to only have a few, we’ll pick out what you need for your specific flute plans.

Some music will be available at Baum’s or can be found at Music Mart (they also place orders). Be sure to call ahead to either store. You can also find it on the internet (Amazon, Flute World, Sheet Music Plus, etc).
