My Flute Rant

Relax.. theres really more important things in life to worry about.
A bit of healthy competition is nothing to be afraid of, you already beat her

I have no idea why flute has become such a feminine instrument. ---------------- [/quote] Im a guy and ...

Struggling to play C1 and C#1

No, its the lowest C I struggle with. The

Struggling to play C1 and C#1

New to the flute and starting off just by trying to play all the low octave notes in sequence. Whenever I try to play C1 and C#1, they come out one (maybe 2) octaves higher than they should be.

Cork in headjoint ?

Thanks for this. I did suspect the cork might be in that position, but when I looked down the inside length of the headjoint, I thought I could see the concave inner area of the crown. But now I look closely, and use the cleaning rod to measure it, this silver area isnt the inside of the crown like ...

Cork in headjoint ?

Hi, Im really new to playing flute. I see a lot of talk about people adjusting the cork in their headjoint, or other references to it. I have a closed hole flute, and cork is nowhere to be seen, inside or out. Can I assume cork is only in the headjoints of open holed flutes ? Or is my flute horribly...

It is not true that you cannot control it.. the diaphragm is vital for breathing, you do not have muscles in your lungs, only in between your ribs, and this is not strong enough to make your lungs inflate. The diaphragm i...
