Sandra Ragusa's book is a Chronology of Julie Baker's life and career with tributes by his colleagues, students and friends. Julie the greatest flutist of his generation and arguably of all time will remain a legend and inspiration to generations of musicians to come.
The Studies in this
book are intended to build a high degree of technical proficiency by means of intensive
work on scales, scale patterns, seventh-chord arpeggios, thirds, sixths, chromatic
sequences, fast staccato, and various duet selections covering in part, the extremely high
tones such as D and E. These exercises have been an integral part of my teaching for
years, a daily discipline for my students. I require the non-duo studies from memory
(in the first ten of them the formulas are not difficult to grasp, and it only remains to
play them in all the tonalities).
