Abstract: "The piccolo is an auxiliary member of the flute family. A diversity of opinion exists among college flute teachers as to the importance and method of piccolo study as part of a flute curriculum. This author conducted a study to outline some current pedagogical trends among college flute teachers. This document presents information gathered via electronic survey from college flute instructors at schools accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music. The survey questions pertained to background information of respondents, studio size, studio requirements, instruments and pedagogical material, and pedagogy. Sixty-five teachers responded to the survey, and the results are published in this document. "--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
