THE FLUTE VIBRATO BOOK

THE FLUTE VIBRATO BOOK by Patricia George and Phyllis Avidan Louke
Vibrato is one of the most controversial topics in flute playing. One school of thought maintains it cannot and should not be taught; adding it will appear in the sound once the flutist has found his musical, expressive soul. Another school of thought champions that vibrato can and should be taught once the teacher hears any suggestion of natural vibrato in the student’s tone. Part of the mystique of flute vibrato has been the lack of understanding about how it is produced. Modern technology has now given us the tools to understand vibrato production. Once understood, it becomes clear how to approach the teaching of vibrato. Practicing these vibrato exercises daily and recording your practice frequently will guide your path to artistry.
