I have to take frequent breaks now, but at least i can play for a bit now. Funny how i could play for hours before and now only minutes, the teacher says with these techniques even the toughest passages for advanced players are made much easier. My playing has gotten a lot smoother, lips completely ...

Things are going a little better, very difficult technique. Feels like im starting over again, but the sound is truly amazing. People always though i had great sound before, now its more hollow and effortless. A lot of relearning, super relaxed face and cheeks, lips. Still got a long way to go befor...

Also XC mountain bike at a very competitive nature, 2-4 hr rides, intense. The only thing that actually saves me in riding is my cardio level, cause some of my techniques c...

Seriously everyone im dying here, Cant do any scales anymore, out of breath and lightheaded after 10 minutes of playing. Old technique i could play, in one breath, D-major all the way to the 4th octave and down. Now i can play one octave only, take a breath and barely make it to the 3rd octave D. Al...

New great flute teacher, having a really difficult time.

So i picked up a few bad habits over the last few months, started with a great teacher in the boston area. I had been playing a lot of spanish/flamenco type music and enjoyed it tons, I had noticed my classical pieces were a little choppy recently, and was trying to smooth out the transitions and ma...

Linda Toote was a great help, thank you to Brannen flutes for putting me in touch with her.

Im now studying, or arranging :-), weekly lessons with one of her previous students Ona Jonaityte. After researching her, im very happy to be studying with such a accomplished flutist.

Thanks for the help,

No sorry my bad, most people dont consider that high F# usable. There are not many pieces, and zero i have played with that F#. I do practice to a forth octave F, but never F#, on scales that permit. You are literally the only person i know who practices scales, and is playable past high F that i kn...

U should be able to whisper a high f#, soft as can be. However, i have seen people with problems with this note,

Practice, try going from high-e to f# directly.

Im very skeptical about this device, however ive s...

Please talk more guys, i need a greater justification to drop $325.00

I was considering, until i saw it was in pounds sterling.

Plus, flute center wants like $325 for it, which is $80 more than the exchange.

Thanks,
