Apologies for posting this question twice: I added it to the end of an existing flute thread but haven't had a reply so maybe nobody has seen it.
What would be a good book for an adult beginner on flute? I play recorder so am not really interested in learning about reading music. I presume a lot of books will cover this anyway if aimed at beginners, but at least it doesn't matter to me if it isn't done very well. On the other hand, I don't at all mind what I play to start with: the Three Blind Mice/Twinkle Twinkle routine is fine. I won't have a teacher so would like something that is fairly detailed, takes me from first sounds to moderate competence, and goes at a reasonable pace.
I have seen recommendations for the Trevor Wye "Beginner's Book for Flute" and also Howard Harrison's "How to play the flute - everything you need to know". In fact I thought the second of these looked pretty good and ordered it but there was a problem with the order and I am back to square one.
