Instruction on how to hold the flute, embouchure and breathing technique (the secret of Irish flute tone.) Mickie Zekley (the founder of Lark In The Morning) demystifies ornamentation including taps, cuts, rolls, multiple rolls, slides, triplets, finger vibrato, and diaphragm pulsing. Also included are examples of tunes in different rhythms including the jig, slip jig, reel, hornpipe, polka and air. Most of the techniques taught can also be applied to the pennywhistle and modern flute.
