Free groovy flute beginner & novice music

Dear Flutists,
For those flute students who've been playing three years or less, or are starting private lessons for the first time this year, you may want some really fun music to play.
Matthew Taylor has uploaded FREE flute sheetmusic with groovy mp3 backing tracks.
You simply download them (click download, and then wait 20 seconds, and click the new DOWNLOAD link that appears) at:

Updated link (2011):

There's a Japanese sounding piece called Flooshie (very cool!), there are a bunch of very easy beginner pieces, good for warming up, and there are even 30 simple rounds for getting together with friends and playing in a duo or trio.
Please check them out, download and print the sheetmusic (pdf) and burn the backing tracks to a CD for your own fun practising.
Slower speed mp3s for those who need to build up their speed are also available at the same site.
Thankyou so much Matthew!
If all flute teachers wrote out groovin' pieces like this, and put the files up for free, we'd really be RICH in flute solo pieces that are modern enough to entice even the most reticent flute student. Thankyou! :>)
