Three Beats for Flute solo

Three Beats for Flute solo

By Pattillo Greg

G. Pattillo: Three Beats for Beatbox Flute was written in 2011 for the Flute Association Convention High School Competition. The composition was composed to combine traditional flute with human beatboxing. To be able to perform this piece the flutist needs to learn how to create beatboxing sounds while playing the flute.
Further information about beatboxing technique on flute you can find on the Greg's youtube channel.
