Re: Has anyone else had problems with Sandy Drelinger?

I am so glad all this is not in my head, I have only heard and read positive things about Drelinger and after this whole fiasco I was beginning to wonder if it was just me...haha. I feel much better now, thanks for the replies. I am probably going to contact Sherry Lee, she has got some great lookin...

Re: Beginner Basics

The most important things for any flutist, whether they started playing today or 5 years ago, are the VERY BASICS--which are: Hand and Body positions Correct breathing technique I have just found it the hand and body positions are harder to teach than I thought they would be....at least for me.

Has anyone else had problems with Sandy Drelinger?

The problem is, I can't roll my tongue and blow a note on my flute at the same time very well, only on some of the highe...
