ESSENTIAL STUDIES RECORDINGS
In light of the situation caused by COVID-19, I am posting practice recordings of (most of) the exercises and songs from the Book 1, Book 2, and Book 3 of the Essential Studies Series on my Google Drive which should be accessible to everyone using the link above. These are recordings of myself playing each exercise or song on the flute (sorry other instruments and percussion). They are mostly played twice, once for a listen if (needed) and once for a play-through, although I suspect I messed up a few times and did some of them only once. I will attempt to record the missing pages and post them when they are ready.
Good luck, stay safe, stay healthy!
