I'm a music ed major in my sophomore year with about 9 years of experience with clarinet. I started taking up flute this summer in preparation for my woodwind methods class. I just recently bought a used student model Yamaha, and now that I'm on break for the semester for about 5 weeks, I'd like to spend some time playing it! I bought a very basic "Standard of Excellence" book this summer to start, but I feel like I need something a bit more challenging since I already understand musical concepts and know basic fingerings. I'm thinking of maybe ordering a Rubank Intermediate book or something along that line. Does this sound like it should be okay, or are there any better recommendations? Of course, I'll also work on long tones and scales! :)

I truly loathe standard of Excellence - it is ok for bands - but not for beginner flutes. Try the Trevor Wye series. Much Much better - and you won't end up only proficient in reading flats.
