Re: Refreshing

Congrats on getting married! Wishing you many decades of "newlywed" bliss! That's great that you are enjoying flute playing again. Sometimes breaks are just as important as practice. Flute repair sounds like a great path for you with your playing experience and your hands-on ability (I'm assuming si...

Flute-only choir

I was just wondering what you all thought about flute choirs. I've heard a couple lately...one amateur group and one music dept group from a local college, and I really don't enjoy the sound that much. You can't really experience the beauty of each individual flute because they are all playing over ...

Re:

Even though it is a VERY contemporary piece, it is also a bit like a tone poem. It was based off of Grecian mourners, their screams and cries while mourning, and the dances they would do. I just started listening to Chant de Linos. Totally makes sense! Where did you get this info? I know this is an...

Question about Hoover's Winter Spirits

Can someone tell me what the slanted/horizontal line that goes through the 16th notes means? I read somewhere that if there were two lines going through the stem of the note it symbolizes double-tonguing and three lines symbolizes triple-tonguing...but what about only one line? I've listened to peop...

Re: Book for music theory

Oh, and by the way...I have this book...

(Alfred's Pocket Dictionary of Music)

...and it is too basic. I need something that has more advanced stuff.

Book for music theory

I keep coming across symbols in various pieces that I don't recognize, and it's difficult to look them up without knowing what they are called. Does anyone know of a good music reference guide/theory book for identifying symbols in music? My only option right now is to ask my flute teacher or this f...

Re: Ugh. Hi there :)

I'm not sure how old you are, but we are probably in the same age bracket. I just finished college with a science degree (I'm 27 now), and have started taking flute lessons for the first time in my life (I had only played in middle/high school band then off and on by myself while in college). I'm pl...

"Checkmark" notation in music

I have been scouring the web for this answer with no success, so I must ask. Can someone tell me what the checkmark-looking notation is in music? There are a lot of them in Suite de Trois Morceaux: Allegretto. It is a little checkmark just above the staff that occurs throughout the piece.
Thanks :)

Re: A little update...

cflutist - That's great that you are enjoying your new flute! It sounds lovely! I'm not sure what you mean by the flute's scale (Cooper vs. pre-Deveau). What does that refer to?
