I'm also looking into a flute teacher around the university for when I can pay for lessons after I get a job, so I'm looking forward to getting actual lessons. Is Laguna Beach too far for you? I met with the prof at Fullerton last semester for an informal "counseling" audition, and she recommended ...

I'm back! My interests changed in the last few months of high school and I'm going to attend UC Irvine studying pre-pharmacy. I haven't seen their music program to decide if I'll participate in any of their ensembles, but I'll continue to study and playing the flute. I'm also looking into a flute te...

Flight of the Bumblebee

What key is the original piece in? The one I have is in the key of f minor. (It starts on C4.) It seems to be a piece with a piano accompaniment since there are piano cues. Most of the piece is just the 16th note runs for the flute and the eighth note parts are taken by the piano cues, so I'm a litt...

Scales

Where can I find printable scales online for all of the scales other than majors and minors? Modes, jazz, blues, etc.

My fault, I meant the 4/4 part after the Andantino where it's 144bpm.

Faure's Fantaisie

Is is okay if the tongued 16th note passages are double tongued?

I always wondered if anyone could tongue the piece regularly rather than double tongue. I doubt I'd be able to get my single tonguing up to that tempo. :P

Is there any background info/history/context to this piece?

Today's my off day. The weather's horrible and gloomy and the amount of air I hear when I play makes it frustrating for me to play because I don't like playing unless I like my tone. ;[

Trill from B natural/C flat to D flat.

Use the fingerings for those notes and alternate. Just make sure to start and end with the B natural fingering.

I saw it on Woodwind & Brasswinds. It seems like one of the Sonare/Azumi/Amadeus/diMedici/Lyric/etc flutes with the good [handmade] headjoint stuck on a body. I wonder how the crown would affect the sound even though it's just "goldplated". Is there a difference between "handmade" and "hand crafted"...

Thank you, fluttiegurl and fluteguy18! I have an offer to get a Dolce with the split-E around as much as the CODAs are worth and your replies helped a lot. Now all I have to worry about is getting to a dealer sometime to play test them. :D Are handmade flutes superior to the factory made ones? [And ...

In fact, I don't even miss the gizmo key. My teachers could never get me to use it for the high C anyway. I always forgot it was there :lol: I have an easier time hitting the high C with a C-foot flute than a B-foot flute. The gizmo key on my flute is too far for my small hands (though I play inlin...

Has anyone heard anything about the Dolce? I've heard about people either loving or hating the 665/765 Quantz, but nothing much from the Dolce and Elegants. How is its quality against a Quantz CODA? I'm looking into one, but it seems it's just like the Quantz 665 version in comparison to the Elegant...
