Arrangement Note: Beautiful Dreamer was adapted to fit the constraints of flutes that have a range of an octave and a minor third, such as Butch Hall concert tuned flutes. Depending on the make of your flute, the high notes may or may not be accessible, so a couple of changes were made to the melody. In the 24th measure, the original melody note was raised to a D natural, which avoids half-holing. In the 31st measure, the first note was lowered to a high F sharp to fit the range of the flutes.
