"When the manuscript for this book arrived I expected I would have a quick glance ... and then send it on to someone else to review it. I decided to read one story, and then another, which led to another and another - and before I realized it I had actually read the whole book and thoroughly enjoyed every word of it! ... A fabulous book."
Liz Goodwin, Flutewise
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Flute Stories" and can recommend it to anyone serious about mastering the flute. The comments of some of the world's top flutists was certainly encouraging, particularly so for young players. It was good to read a book about music with so much detail of the lives and struggles of musicians."
- David Liell, Flute Australasia
"What a wonderful idea! Learning what is behind the beautiful performances of so many well-known flutists - how they became a professional or ... worked through devastating situations that threatened to destroy their ability to play ... reveals what is required of someone wishing to dedicate their life to music. I will be referring back to my copy frequently!"
Mary Jean Simpson, The Flutist Quarterly
"Over the past few days I have become engrossed in reading an advance copy of "Flute Stories: 101 Inspirational Stories from the World's Best Flute Players." The list of contributors reads like an international who's who of flute playing. The stories told by these legendary flute players are truly inspirational and eye-opening. It is comforting, uplifting, and informative to see that even the most successful musicians of our time have faced many of the same difficulties and hurdles that we all face.
The contributing players in this unique book have achieved success in every style of music-making, from classical to rock to jazz, and they come from every corner of the globe. The stories they have to share make for riveting reading from cover to cover.
My congratulations to Windplayer Publications for doing such a splendid job in creating this unique publication, and to every contributor for sharing their important and often deeply personal stories with everyone.
