A New Score a Day!

Welcome to your daily source of free flute sheet music. Our commitments:

  • Every day you will find a new piece of printable flute music to sight-read.
  • No matter if you are a beginner or an expert: the pieces span across all levels of difficulty.
  • If you're a teacher, here you'll find a great deal of free sheet music to use with your students… And to enjoy yourself, too!

But there's more to that:

  • All sheet music is accompanied by an MP3 you can listen to to get a feel of the music.
  • We also post flute duets and pieces with piano accompaniment, and for all these we provide free play-along MIDI and MP3 tracks.
  • Almost everything you'll need during your practice sessions is just a click away: a metronome, flute fingerings, scales, a glossary to search for foreign words…

So… Enjoy! And let us know if you have any request by dropping us a message!

Tune of the Day: Bluebird Variation

 from Tchaikovsky's “The Sleeping Beauty”

This birdsong-like piece is taken from Act III of Tchaikovsky's famous 1890 ballet The Sleeping Beauty. It is, without a doubt, one of the most charming and well-known numbers in classical ballet.

The main protagonists of this Andantino are two flutes, which in the original score are supported by a clarinet and pizzicato strings. What we propose today is the two unaltered flute parts; as it turns out, they make a very nice flute duet, even without accompaniment.

Thanks to Lucia for suggesting this piece!

Tune of the Day: Presto in B minor by Quantz

 for solo flute

This Presto in B minor is one of 24 pieces attributed to the famous German flutist and composer Johann Joachim Quantz to have survived in a manuscript titled Fantasier og Preludier. 8. Capricier og andre Stykker til Øvelse for Flöÿten af Quanz (“Fantasies and Preludes. 8 Caprices and other Pieces for Exercise for the Flute by Quantz”). This manuscript has been kept in the Giedde Collection (named after its founder, Danish composer W.H.R.R. Giedde) in the Royal Library of Copenhagen, which hosts a fairly comprehensive collection of flute music from the second half of the 18th century.

Tune of the Day: Corrente by J.S. Bach

 from Violin partita in B minor

Johann Sebastian Bach composed the Partita No. 1 in B minor for solo violin, BWV 1002, in 1720. What we present today is a transcription for solo flute of the third movement (or second movement, depending on whether you count the doubles as separate movements) of this Partita, the corrente. In order to fit the range of the flute, the piece has been transposed from B minor to E minor.
