Vibrato: John Wion's vibrato page has been extremely helpful for many of my students in the process of learning about vibrato. The page is embedded with many examples of vibrato (including voice and string excerpts). Each example is given in real-time as well as 300% slower - an eye-opener to any student who has never heard the various types of vibrato pulses slowed down. Many great flutists from are represented on this page.

Breathing: Ransom Wilson's article on breathing is informative and a good read, with illustrations showing the crucial intercostal muscles and diaphragm. This article was initially published by the National Flute Association.
