You can find Chromatic Scales and Studies in Rubank Elementary Method for flute or piccolo. It is a rather inexpensive book that covers scales and chords.

The Chromatic Scale, for flute or any instrument, is simply playing all 12 notes. For eg., the C Chromatic (most popular) would be: C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B and finish on the next C.

It`s as simple as that. Play 2 Octaves straight up and back down for every key except C which uses three octaves.

The C chromatic scale is most requested for flute because you are usually requested to play 3 octaves from the C4 (low C on the flute) to C7 (the highest C on the flute). For further method instruction (i.e. types of articulation, you should ask a teacher, or purchase a method book as suggested above).

Best of luck.

You may find "FREE" Chromatic Scales on the internet, just by doing a google search. But once you look for Chromatic Studies for flutes, I couldn`t find any free studies, but I found that the Rubank book (and others) are used as audition materials for various schools.

You may have to buy the Rubank book anyway, and at $5.50, I still think its an inexpensive resourse.
