Watertown is a couple of hours from where I live. It's where I go whenever I get sick of Canada and I need America (which is, like, 24/7).

Not sure if that would be reasonale though...

I suppose you could call it tone.

High notes tend to go flat. You'll have to roll the flute out from you a little when you get to those notes.

Listen to fluteguy18, get a degree in teaching music. Become a band director at a high school. You'll make decent money, have a fun time, and your job will be pretty secure.

Work on bringing your grades up instead. Musicians aren't gonna make any money with this Recession/Depression coming up.

I play like that too. My old flute teacher told me to stop doing it.

I'm not taking lessons from her anymore.

Play it and see which one sounds better. I would suspect that something made in 1970 will sound better than something made in 1922. That is if it's sound you're talking about. If you're just a collector interested in resale value, then I have no idea, but I would keep the 1922 one because it's older.

Practice doing it over and over again. While you're sitting watching TV, hold the flute (you don't need the headjoint in) and keep moving the fingers off and on. You'll get it eventually.

Yes, actually. If you played it at the store, and it was fine, then all's well. If not, then it doesn't matter if it's a $100,000 solid-gold diamond-encrusted flute signed in blood by James Galway, it could be deffective. Always play it first.

You're better off keeping your £60 flute than buying a £200-£250 one, as they won't be much better. If you're serious about learning the flute, spend some real money (like $1000+, whatever that is in pounds or euros or whatever £ means). If you're not serious about the flute and just do it for sh!ts...

It could just be a crappy flute. Did you play if before you bought it?
