Re: Flutter-tonguing

Hi, I cannot Flutter tongue but my daughter can. It is kind of strange and gross how she learned but I will go ahead and share in case it may help you. To make long story short, my daughter has had lots of sinus problems and it causes lots of sinus drainage that caused her to clear her throat quite ...

Re: Any insight???

<< Should I just call off the deal and wait for a legitimate inquiry?>> I would call the deal off immediately. I posted my daughters flute a year ago on that site and received the same kind of emails (many of them) . Since then I have read numerous stories of similar scams. I would check with local ...

Re: Intermediate flute brands?

I would personally stay away from the intermediate Gemeinhardt. I purchased a student Gemeinhardt and it was fine but the intermediate was not reliable mechanically. I would never purchase another one. As far as the Zeus. I have never heard of them so I would not even consider it. There are too many...

Re: Should the tongue touch the teeth?

Hi,
I personally don't touch my teeth when tounging. I have heard and read that touching the teeth is the "French" way of tounging. I don't personally think it is a " should or shouldn't ".

Re: When did you start playing your flute?

Hi Burke, No I don't really regret putting down my flute for so many years. It wasn't exactly a conscience decision...life just kind of took a turn and I was busy working and etc. It has turned out to be a fun hobby as an adult and it is so much different to practice now because I want to rather tha...

Re: M Series Gemeinhardt

<<I assume (you know what that will get you) that the 2 indicates student level and the 3 indicates conservatory level?>>

I believe the M2 is silver plated and the M3 has a solid silver headjoint.

Re: M Series Gemeinhardt

Hi, I'm looking for a beginner flute (used okay) and I see some listings for M2 or M3 flutes by Gemeinhardt. I went to Gemeinhardt's website and they don't list any M series flutes. Could someone enlighten me? Thanks for your help. My daughter used to play a Gemeinhardt M3. I purchased it new for h...

Re: Are Emerson flutes good?

I have never owned or played on an Emerson. I play on a Yamaha student model and my daughter plays on a Yamaha 561 and we have been very happy with them. I can say that Yamaha has a pretty good reputation as far as reliability. I really can't say much about Emerson except that I know that they are p...
