The Happy Flutist by Kenneth Godfrey was written for the flutist who has been studying and playing the instrument for a couple of years or more and is bored with the endless mileage of scales, dry studies, and so-called “arrangements” of tunes they already know. Important as is the technical work they have been doing, it is very important too that they should occasionally stray from this thorny path and, in plain words, “have a little fun with their flute.” The object of these little pieces, many of them written “with tongue in cheek,” is frankly to inject a little humor and imagination into an art which is, at best, a merciless taskmaster. At the same time, each piece of music illustrates a particular point of flute technique and will repay careful study.
