Class resources 2013-14

A home for the various recordings and written music for all FluteFling Thursday classes for this teaching year.

For previous years, the archive can be found on the main Resources page.

The tune are notated in ABC format and converted to PDF for ease of printing. ABC format is useful for printing, sharing and playing back the music. To find out how to do that, there is extensive tuition and app information at the ABC Notation home page.

My recordings of the music can be downloaded from this page of you can go to Soundcloud, were these are hosted. I generally play these at a slow and then more natural tempo. Check the main Resources page for various archive recordings.
