The Dreams of Birds
World premiere recordings of wonderful music from eight of America’s leading composers
Novel instrumental colors and timbres from rarely heard instruments of the flute family
Striking and beautifully recorded performances from top musicians
Thirty Solos for the Intermediate Flutist
Collection of thirty pieces by various composers
Classical favorites arranged for flute
Great for flutists and non-flutists
I use this book in my teaching studio because it has a great variety of musical styles. These are pieces that you will recognize and enjoy the arrangements for flute and piano. Even if you are not a flute player or musician, this album is delightful to listen to.
Forty Little Pieces
Collection of forty beginning pieces for flute by various composers
Professional recording of beginning flute repertoire
Flute and Piano recorded separately so it can be used as a practice track
As a flute teacher, I often use Forty Little Pieces for my students. I have always felt that it is important for students to have a good concept of sound. Even the simplest piece should be played with exquisite sound and musicianship. I recorded the pieces in stereo so the student may hear only the flute (right side) and/or piano (left side) for study purposes. This is a great tool for all aspiring flute players as well as an enjoyable listening experience for all.

Jenni Scott (Olson)
Fantastic collection of Chamber and Solo music featuring the flute
Debut album with classical favorites and new music
Features several pieces that can only be heard on this album
Talented composers at the University of Southern California inspired my first album Jenni Scott. While in school, I was frequently asked to perform on composer’s composition recitals and student films. I fell in love with collaborating with gifted composers. This album is a collection of some of my favorite pieces that I had performed during my years in school with some of my favorite musicians. The album also includes my first commission, Three Pieces for flute, accordion and double bass by Bear McCreary.

Her other albums include two holiday albums titled Christmas Favorites for flute and harp and We Wish You a Merry Christmas which features two flutes, viola and cello. The other two albums are standard flute repertoire. Forty Little Pieces is a book that almost every flute player starts in. Jenni recorded this beginning book so that new flute players would have a great sound reference as they begin their musical studies. It is also recorded on separate tracks that can be played with just the flute or piano alone. The other educational album is great for flute players as well as a great collection for Classical music lovers. Thirty Intermediate Solos has music from all time periods and is as fun to listen to as it is to play.
