A Method for the Flute by Jean-Louis Tulou, translated and edited by Janice Dockendorff Boland and Martha F. Cannon. Indiana University Press, SB, 131 pages. Jean-Louis Tulou (1786-1865) was a highly influential flute player and teacher. His method was first published in 1835 and was adopted by the Paris Consveratoire during the period (1842-1856) when Tulou was Professor of Flute. The method was written for the pre-Boehm conical wooden flute. This is a valuable book for those with an interest in the flutes of that era and the history of flute pedagogy.

Of all the wind instrument, the flute uses the most air under the lowest pressure, exactly the opposite of the most desirable situation. This book presents in detail the learning and practice methods that should enable every flutist to master circular breathing. In addition to basic and intermediate exercises, this book contains examples from the repertoire and advanced techniques.
