Rue Traversière 1, en concert dès 2 notes!
The Flute Way 1, In Concert with 2 Notes (2003)
With Brigitte LE BORGNE                   
18 pieces for flute and piano, from mouthpiece to more 2 octaves, ten having easy piano accompaniment  and based on melodies with repeats at the higher or lower octave. For 1st and  2nd year of practice. CD accompaniment. (LEDUC08047)
‘Striding down The Flute Way , Sophie Dufeutrelle has once again taken a side-street; this exceptional, outstanding pedagogue has put - as she always does - musical pleasure at the forefront.
Her approach, in collaboration with Brigitte Le Borgne, enables the budding flautist actually to play music within the first hour of a lesson,even though he or she is just blowing into the mouthpiece, and this is asrevolutionary as it is exhilarating, since it does away once and for all with the sometimes austere approach of conventional musical practice!
Congratulations to Sophie and Brigitte, and much joy to everyone.’
Philippe BERNOLD
Soloist, Professor at the Lyons Superior Conservatory (CNSM)

‘Sophie Dufeutrelle has always taken a right turn when all around herare turning left! I have always found this both charming and stimulating. This constant search for new ideas and her challenge to the traditional ways of learning have resulted in a new concept in beginner’s books: TheFlute Way. I warmly wish the success that it certainly deserves.’
Trevor WYE
Soliost, Professor at the Guildhall School of Music, London and  at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
Founder of  the British Flute Society.
