Taffanel Claude Paul

Paul Taffanel (1844-1908) was a French flutist, conductor and teacher. As Professor of flute at the Paris Conservatory, he profoundly changed teaching methodology and greatly influenced flute repertoire.
The  founder of the French Flute School, advocating tone quality and vibrato, fully taking advantage of technical capabilities of T. Boehm's modern flute, inspiring his students to play in a new, more subtle way with light vibrato (discouraging use of vibrato when playing early music, though), he completely changed the way how masterclasses were held, focusing attention to individual student. His legacy and impact on flute continue through his method book for flute 17 Grands exercices journaliers de mécanisme which was finished by his students L. Fleury and P. Gaubert after his death.
