    “Despite the lengthy list of exercises, [THE FLUTE SCALE BOOK] is not a mere collection of notes but a well-organized approach that offers sample practice plans, thoughtful instructional prose, possibilities for players at every level, many variations of articulation and rhythm, and clear graphics… … “While the title indicates an emphasis on scales, throughout the book it is clear that the true emphasis is on mastering technique as a means to heightened expression, phrasing, and musical artistry. It is a must-have for flutists at every level…”
    -Diane Boyd-Schultz, Flute Talk Magazine, September 2012

    “…Throughout [THE FLUTE SCALE BOOK], Patricia George and Phyllis Avidan Louke have written excellent teaching materials, helping the student or teacher understand how sound is produced and by what means the flute can be played beautifully and efficiently. Materials contained within the book can be used very early in a flutist’s study, and professional flutists looking for a new routine will have their needs satisfied by the exercises included. This is one of the most carefully though-out and comprehensive methods for flute study available, and a valuable resource for students and teachers of all levels.”
    -Rebecca Johnson, Flutist’s Quarterly, Spring 2012

A great deal of thought and intelligent detail has gone into this book and the result is an original book on scales. I am happy to say I have this book in my library.”

    “The Flute Scale Book creatively underscores the importance of thoughtful, artistically informed technical study–a concept integral to fruitful practice, rewarding performances, and insightful pedagogy. This inspiring volume is an invaluable addition to the technical literature for our instrument.”
    -Leone Buyse, Mullen Professor of Flute, Rice University, June 2011

    “The title says it all: The Flute Scale Book – A Path to Artistry The tenderest moments of music, the most emotional throes of passion, the most dazzling technical interpretation, all of what we love about the flute have a common denominator: instrumental playing, also called technique. It is the thoroughness of this book that will help flutists of all levels achieve higher goals. It is “La Scala di Seta”, the Silken Scale (ladder) of the flute.”
    -Michel Debost, Professor of Flute, Oberlin Conservatory (retired), June 2011

    “With inspiring quotes from Nadia Boulanger and loads of real world practical advice, The Flute Scale Book will help students turn scale practice from drudgery into creative exploration. I love the inclusion of many types of modal scales and the use of harmonic fingerings for embouchure development. The Flute Scale Book is a world in itself. Go, explore and enrich your playing!”
    -Robert Dick, Flutist, Composer, Author, June 2011

    “The premise of The Flute Scale Book is absolutely wonderful – building skills to enhance music making. I recommend it to the beginner to establish an excellent foundation on the flute, practice habits, and musical concepts, and to the more advanced player to refine and organize practice. This is a book to keep you growing.”
    -Marianne Gedigian, Professor of Flute, Butler School of Music, University of Texas at Austin, June 2011

    “Not since the time of Taffanel & Gaubert has there been such a complete yet modern guide to the most fundamental aspect of flute technique: Scales. The Flute Scale Book is well thought out and its highly organized, structured layout makes easy for Anyone to find their most effective way to work on Scales, phrasing and technique. I enjoy it tremendously and highly recommend it.”
    -Marco Granados, Longy School of Music, Cambridge, MA, June 2011

    “I recommend The Flute Scale Book to anyone who wants daily guidance and discipline in flute playing through scales and technical exercises. Daily scale practice has been a proven teacher of technique and, over time, leads the player to a higher level of artistry. The Flute Scale Book, with a basic overview of form and theory and great suggestions for practice, is a necessary and constructive addition to any flute player’s library.”
    -Amy Porter, Professor of Flute, University of Michigan School of Music, June 2011

    “The Flute Scale Book: A Path to Artistry is outstanding – one of the best and most useful fundamental technique books ever. In fact it’s really several books in one as it offers a detailed, musically-aware approach to technique building and maintenance from beginner to advanced level. I can’t recommend it too highly.”
    -Dr. Stephen Preston, Professor of Historical Flutes at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London, June 2011

    The Flute Scale Book: “Everything you ever needed you know about scales, and more!”
    -Gary Schocker, Flutist and Composer, June 2011

    “I earned my DMA in Flute Performance and Pedagogy in 1988. The Topic of my Monograph was “A Comparison and Application of Select Teaching Methods for The Flute by Henri Altes, Paul Taffanel-Philippe Gaubert, Marcel Moyse and Trevor Wye”. I included these methods in my research because I felt they were the major steps in the pedagogical development of the Western European Transverse Flute. After studying from The Flute Scale Book: A Path to Artistry and now using it as a daily staple of my practice routine, I can easily say this book is the next major step in the pedagogical development of the Transverse Flute. Patricia and Phyllis….WELL DONE!!!”
    -David Etienne, Professor of Music, Henderson State University, Arkadelphia, AR, April 2010

    “This marvelous new scale book is written by two instructors who truly know how to teach scales in a thorough manner. The book is brilliantly conceived to be used with the earliest beginners or by the most advanced flutists, whether children or adults. I’m currently using it with my own students and I love the dazzlingly wonderful vast array of exercises from which I can choose to suit each individual. This book can be an intelligent, interesting, lifelong guide for any flute player.”
    -Helen Spielman, Performance Anxiety Coach and Flute Teacher, Chapel Hill, NC, February 2010

    “Just have to drop you a note about how much I am enjoying and benefiting from The Flute Scale Book. It is much more than the title implies. It really is almost a replacement for about half my library of flute method and etude material. The key to the success of your work is the combined effect of the order, variety of scales, tone development, phrasing, arpeggios, intervals, and fingering material. Overall, the combination of advice, exercises, and playing material is just the right balance and mixture of elements to give me a good daily workout in the minimum amount of time.”
    -Jerrold Pritchard, CSU San Bernardino Flute Professor (retired), West Linn, OR, February 2010
