A lovely, low tune to practice - "Colours of the Wind" is the main song from the Disney film Pocahontas. I particularly enjoyed this one on flute, it (nearly) sounds lovely! Beginners, piccolos and recorders may need to shift the notes up a bit to play comfortably, pianists should have no problem. Enjoy!
