Be more concerned over which you play better. Big difference in an audition for a minor program at University than the advice some want to compare to it. If you can play either of those pieces well you should have no problem getting into most third rate programs. Probably most second rate Universiti...

Count the number of holes on your flute, then count how many are "open". A wise pro once told me if it made a difference half your notes would sound different than the others.

No offense but most people that love their Gemmeinhardt are ones that have not progressed to the point where they buy a better flute. Then they understand why no one recommends them anymore.

If you play a Yamaha Allegro how is that you are not familiar with a 300 level Yamaha? Your Allegro is a 371 Yamaha or a 471 which is the same except for the silver tube. Try out a lot of flutes if you are planning on spending that much money. Hopefully after having played for 7 years you have a som...

You might guess that but it isn't true. You are the victim of bad internet gossip. Aprenti if still in business is not in any way connected with K.H.S. Musical Instrument Co., Ltd the parent company of Altus, Jupiter and deMedici flutes. Call them, email them or check the website, I and others did t...

A quick check of NY Flute, Nussbaum, JL Smith, Fluteworld and a couple other large internet sellers show none of them carry Aprenti.

Its the real world out, people get judged everyday and there is pressure. Might as well start getting used to it in HS. Most high schools don't even have one flute player that is good in the sense that they have a future playing the instrument. Lucky to find one in honors bands. So in that sense it ...

Lyric has been around and has a decent track record But if you have a $5000 budget and you can do better. In that price range, Haynes and probably Powell really aren't going to work out because their better flutes are more expensive. But the other instruments recommended Muramatsu, Miyazawa and Altu...

Aprenti is not affiliated with Altus in any way. It is not an Altus Jr. Contact Altus if you want confirmation. It is just another flute company and from what I read only sold by the maker in California who was once an apprentice at Altus and decided to make his own. Having not played them, or knowi...
