Carl Fischer Music Presents New Edition of
Joachim Andersen’s 24 Progressive Studies for the Flute

New York , NY — Carl Fischer Music presents an exciting spin on a classic teaching method with a new edition of Joachim Andersen’s 24 Progressive Studies for the Flute, Op. 33 (WF84 - $9.95). While all of the original etudes are included, flute pedagogue Professor Charles DeLaney has expanded them to include notes in the upper range of the instrument, updating this book for the flute’s modern incarnation. DeLaney also lends his sharp wit to this edition, having cleverly named the etudes and also has provided helpful and humorous practice notes for each. In addition, this book also features “DeLaney’s Daily Dozen,” a set of practice exercises guaranteed to improve technique and musicality. Essentially a complete method built on a proven collection of etudes, Delaney’s edition of 24 Progressive Studies for the Flute, Op. 33 is absolutely essential for serious flute students, and this fresh new edition will be welcomed by students and teachers alike.

Flutist, composer, and teacher Charles DeLaney received his Master of Music Degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder, and was a well-loved fixture in the flute teaching world from his first stint at Earlham College in 1950 up until his death in 2006. An active member of the National Flute Association, Mr. Delaney served on the board of directors as Vice-President and President, and received the organization’s distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998. As a flutist, Mr. Delaney performed as orchestral principal flutist, soloist, and chamber musician throughout the United Stares, and as a composer, he wrote works for almost every genre of music and every instrument. Finally, he served as Music Director and Conductor of the Albany (Georgia) Symphony Orchestra from 1979-1988.

Carl Fischer Music has a growing and diversified catalog of musical products, now expanded to include DVDs and compact discs, as well as its traditional print music product lines.
