    “With Flute 103: Mastering the Basics, Patricia George and Phyllis Avidan Louke have compiled an excellent intermediate method book that includes a varied collection of solos and a supplementary volume of their piano accompaniments… “This is a wonderful compilation of distinctive works for the intermediate player. The outstanding performance guides and composer biographies add depth to the volume. I especially like the creative exercises using techniques such as harmonics to find a tone that “blooms,” short tonguing exercises, multiphonics, trills, and the preluding exercises in each key… “On the front cover is a clear fingering chart and on the back cover are insightful, yet simple, suggestions concerning musical phrasing. In addition, on the last few pages of the book, George has written excellent notes on methods of technical practice and ways to learn to play more musically. These notes are appropriate for players or teachers of any level. The area concerning musically informed performance covers the concepts of breathing (based on the teaching of William Kincaid), melodic contour, beat strength, and style. I heartily recommend this book. It is a wonderful addition to the flute library.”
    -Andrea Loewy, The Flutist Quarterly, Summer 2014

    “…Flute 103: Mastering the Basics is the most comprehensive, thoroughly written, and well-organized method and solo collection available for the intermediate flute student. George and Louke’s newest addition to the outstanding Mastering the Basic series is an essential volume for studio teachers working with developing flutists and for advanced flutists seeking an excellent source of creative and effective warm-up material to further their own practice.”
    -Cristina Ballatori, MTNA Journal, December/January 2013/2014

    “…[FLUTE 103: MASTERING THE BASICS] is an excellent addition to the repertoire for the middle-level flutist. Third in the inventive Mastering the Basics series, this well-organized volume includes five chapters devoted to studies in the keys of Ab, E, Db, B, and Gb and their relative minors… “This innovative method is the most thorough and systematized approach available in today’s marketplace.”
