I thought I'd reply to a couple of your questions about repertoire in terms of auditioning for Juilliard. It's a good idea to start thinking about repertoire even though you're only a Junior. Time goes by quickly, and by your senior year you will overwhelmed. In regards to repertoire options. Unfort...

In Mozart concertos, the International editions, editted by Rampal have good cadenzas and are pretty standard. With his cadenzas you do not have to do much in adding trills or ornaments he has already written them in. There are several other cadenzas that have been written by others, you can check o...

Smith and Fluteworld has a wide range of flutes and you can click on each brand and see if that company has a flute in your price range. You don't hav...

I think one of the most important things to know before buying a flute is what your price range and limit is. it can be frustrating to you if you start trying flutes that you can't afford but fall in love with. Generally there are a fair number of flutes that you can probably try within your price r...

Kendall, It's a good idea to have insurance on your instruments, especially if you travel or have really valuable instruments. You can have your instruments covered under your parent's home owner's insurance, however it only covers certain things. My wood piccolo was covered under home owner's insur...

Kendall, I have a Hall Crystal Flute. They're really easy to play and any flute player wouldn't have a problem getting a sound out of it. They're not really used for anything besides show, they're just really pretty and fun to have :) I don't know of any other brands besides Hall, they seem to be th...
