Mozart and Rock. Flute lessons for beginners

Mozart is Rock is a new method to learn how to play the flute. A method with which to cover all the classical stages of learning a musical instrument:
the setting, the sound, the posture, the technique, the solfeggio. Topical moments analyzed with the eye and the experience of a great teacher.
But why a new method then? Where’s the news?
Rien de Reede is able to introduce classical elements with contemporary eye and means, reads the tradition and accompanies it with the video, plays Mozart or Beethoven and explains it with the internet. This is rock, precisely because of the association of a long didactic tradition with the multimedia contents that the network makes it possible for the declension of the musical language with the aid of video. In any place, at any time, with the mobile phone, the computer, the tablet, we always have a close persuasive example that accompanies our reading and the study of the flute.

Fantasy on themes from G. Verdi’s Traviata

The aim of this work is to give the transverse flute repertoire a more extensive fantasy on the Traviata compared to those already present in our literature: a review of the work perhaps less inclined to the virtuosic aspect for its own sake, but more brought to that beautiful song that has made Giuseppe Verdi and the famous Italian opera school in the world.

Our edition is based on the first print, published in Venezia in 1712 by Gioseppe Sala. It bears the following title: Suonate a flauto solo/ con il suo basso continuo per violoncello ò cembalo/ di Benedetto Marcello/ nobile Veneto/dilettante di contrapunto/e accademico filarmonico/ et arcade/Opera seconda…

«A book alone can not succeed in improving such a delicate aspect as that of sound without your input. These exercises are just ideas, proposals; you will be later to complete according to our personal needs the studies that are suggested to you. Be inventive and do not passively study! »
