In order for a flute player to remain employed today, they must be well versed in all aspects of their instrument. This includes the traditional teachings of scales, tone development, etudes, orchestral excerpts, and the standard repertoires as well as improvisation and transposition on a consistent basis, various genres of contemporary music, and a wide range of extended flute techniques—to include flute beatboxing.
This project report explores the reasons why extended flute techniques and improvisation may be the vehicle to producing a more well-rounded musician. By becoming a well-rounded musician, the flute player can open up many new doors and possibly find that an alternate performance option may be more enjoyable then the path that they originally chose, or in the meantime, find a new means of income while they wait for the coveted orchestra position.
This project report includes a biographies for Rohert Dick and Greg Pattillo, analyses of a few measures of Robert Dick's piece Fish Are Jumping, and a breakdown of Greg Patillo's “Boots, Kats” exercise—to include a reference guide for beginning beatboxing (whether with a flute or without).
