Köhler Study Programme
Köhler - Studies
Ernesto Köhler was a 19th century Italian flute virtuoso, who wrote wonderful flute studies. He also possessed an acute awareness of the shortcomings of both the flute and those who wished to play it!
A good Köhler study (or étude) should not only provide us with specific areas to work on, but should also be musically stimulating. However, at times, there may only be a few bars in a study that present us with ‘problems’. The idea is to work through the issues raised in those bars and at the same time, put them into different keys. Over a period of time, this will provide us with greater control of the instrument and lead to a more rounded technique.
I have edited individual studies from Köhler Opus 33, Book 1. At least one Köhler study will be released every month. This includes written teaching notes for each study and four of five exercises that I have composed, relating to the 'areas' that require our attention. All of this information is ready to download anytime during the month of purchase.
I have also made a performance video of each Köhler study and further videos, demonstrating each exercise and giving information on how to work on the issues raised. You will have unlimited access to these videos for the duration of the month purchased. The introductory cost for all of the above will be £5.50, which I hope you will agree is almost a bargain!
