This guide is intended to help you use the UNT Music Library to find printed music for flute, books about the flute, journals devoted to the flute, and more.
The UNT Libraries use the Library of Congress call number system to classify books and scores in our collections. Call numbers for scores begin with the letter M. Here are important numbers to know for flute music. Under each individual number, scores are usually in alphabetical order by composers' last names. Once you know this, you can browse if you want to select some music.
Flute alone: M 60-M 64
Flute with piano accompaniment: M 240-M 244
Flute with orchestra: M 1020
Flute with orchestra, reduction for flute and piano: M 1021
Flute with string orchestra: M 1120
