Plaisir d'Amour, played on flute

Have a listen to the beautiful Plaisir d'Amour, written by Martini, played on the flute. It's very similar to the song Can't Help Falling in Love, so we know what Elvis was listening to when he wrote this song!


Plaisir d'Amour, played on flute

It's Valentine's Day this week, and I thought I'd highlight a beautiful piece that you might like to learn, which I'm gonna play for you.

It isn't Elvis Presley, even though it sounds like it. And by the way, if you'd like a tip for your breathing in this, so your long phrases and getting a clear sound, I'll tell you at the end.

Alright, so if this is not Elvis Presley, what do you think it is? A clue. It was written in the late 17 hundreds.

It does sound like Elvis Presley, doesn't it? So it does sound like I can't stop, I can't help, can't stop. Hang on. How does it go? I can't help falling in love with you. It sounds like that, but it's actually written by Martini in the late 17 hundreds and it's a quite a famous tune and such a beautiful tune that Elvis obviously took it and turned it into one of his own songs.

So about help with your breathing and your tone. If you would like to get longer phrases with your playing and you would also like to get a clearer sound, which by the way is the same mechanism with your embouchure to get both of those things at the same time, come and do the free mini course if you haven't already.

It's a tiny little course, a three day course at www.flute.school. And I'll show you in three quick lessons in three days for free, how to get a clearer sound, stronger sound, which means you'll also get longer phrases.

So my name is Jane Cavanagh and I teach the flute in The Flute Academy how to get much faster progress by learning the tiny little tweaks like what I teach you in the tiny course. The tiny little tweaks of proper technique so that you get instant progress.

I'll also put a link below in this video to this piece if you would like to learn it. You can print it out for free. And I'll see you. I'll see you in the next video. Or I'll see you in The Flute Academy if you're one of the students there. Or I'll see you in the tiny course. Bye.

Thanks to flutetunes.com for the great arrangement for flute of this piece.
