This method uses colours, solmisation and an abundance of folk music material. Inspired by the Colourstrings method Colour Flute takes as its starting point the character of the instrument and the world of the child. It aims at a flexible and versatile control of the instrument as well as improvisation skills, ensemble playing and overall musicianship.
