One of the books I use with my students is:

Studies for facilitating the execution of the upper notes of the flute.
by Daniel S Wood
pub Cundy Bettoney (Carl Fischer)

I use it with sax students too. Works very well---do it slowly and match tones.

Hi all,

It seems to me the reason mastery of altissimo comes slowly for most is the
lack of altissimo studies. What the literature has is scales/arpeggios that
ascend briefly to the range or an etude that touches it briefly. As far as I
know there are no altissimo studies per se.

What I'd like to see are studies:
1. similar to the Klose Mechanisms
2. similar to the Kroepesch studies,
3. etudes whose tessitura are upper clarion and altissimo.

If anyone knows of such I'd appreciate hearing about them. As things stand
now, I writing my own.

Best wishes,
--Vann Joe
