Andersen op. 15 lessons by Paul Edmund Davies

Dear Flutists,
I just love these new "works in progress" videos by Paul Edmund Davies.
He combines the teaching of the Andersen Opus 15 studies 1, 2 and 3, with exercises from his wonderful book: The 28 day Warm Up Book - For All Flautists, Eventually.

Here are the videos and I think they seriously ROCK, plus, of course, what an incredible vindication of all that I know about etudes. Enjoy!
(Note: My computer runs these videos smoothly at 480 or 360 but NOT 720; so maybe so adjust if necessary.)

Etude no. 1 opus 15

Etude no. 2 op. 15

Etude no. 3 op. 15

Please free to comment below. Best, Jen

Dear Jen
I am so glad to be wrong. I always thought Andersen studies all sucked big time but it was just my playing. Doh!!

This is a great resource a interesting to listen to such a good player and teachers thoughts.

If anyone wants to listen to a recording of Andersen Op.15 No3 played really well with circular beathing have a look and listen to

Um... Zowie!!! Very helpful methodology for studying etudes, taken along with Jen's excellent article. Always good to be reminded that etudes should sound musical. Thank you.

Thanks for posting these videos, I didn't know about them. I am about to publish my experiences with P. E.-D.'s 28 Day Warmup on my blog, so I did a little research and found your entry. Your blog is such a great resource!
