i take your comments graciously phineas, and i have often wondered myself when flutepicc has the time to practice as he seems to be deeply involved in a couple of flute forums giving us all the benefit of his huge knowledge. this forum more than most has a great share of teenage flautists (i'm engli...

bought an emerson EF88BOF solid silver tube, open holed, off set G, B foot, It feels really good in my hands, the mechanism is beautiful, however, the headjoint was colourless and didn't hold many surprises so i bought a handmade headjoint Andrew Oxley London, solid silver 14ct gold riser and lip pl...

i've been doing a lot more playing recently and my finger hurts in the same spot like yours. i've put it down to being a little tense but more likely the extra playing, therefore i now do 20 minute sessions and rest for 5 minutes, concentrating on relaxation in those 5 minutes (cos my left shoulder ...

i've been playing the flute for more years than i care to mention, but have recently taken lessons again as i reached a plateau and couldn't get any further or any improvements.

i bought a new headjoint for my flute as i felt i had discovered all the tones and colours my old one had to offer. the price difference between the two headjoints was quite dramatic and i felt i might have made a bit of a mistake as i couldn't get much out of the newer more expensive one. but that ...

mozart and the flute

Mozart did like the flute, it was flute players he didn't care for. The flutist that commissioned Mozart to write the concertos was a bad/late payer. I also read somewhere that Mozart composed the flute concertos to be particularly difficult so that the flutist wouldn't ask him to write another !!!

when i'm working on awkward runs as the ones in this piece, i practise them forwards (as written) and backwards (like a scale) slowly at first and then build up the speed. :lol:

i think lachiquitadelaflautaloca was trying to say that if you either tip the flute towards you or turn it out away from you this will also flatten or raise the pitch :D

b foot gizmo

Hi, i have just bought a b foot flute with gizmo, i can see how the gizmo helps on high c but i find the stretch down to it ( especially with my f finger in place for high c fingering) almost impossible, and quite painful. I don't see how this gizmo will help when playing faster music at the moment,...
