I did it with all the plugs out and I didn't put them back in until i got it down. That took me about 2 weeks. Although, it WILL be a very fustrating to play this way as the notes will come out airy or not at all, just keep working and maybe put the plugs back in once or twice if you really can't st...

What school?

You know, none of us know where anyone is from on this forum. So then, high schoolers should post the school they flute for and the state naturally and what ensembles they participate in.

I'll start.

gradually increase the tempo you use or decrease as needed. Practice in front of a mirror. I discovered that my lips would sometimes would be moving more than my air! Practice low notes, high notes, major scales up and down (mix them up), chromatic scales, minor scales (harmonic & melodic), Modestic...

I have a high E falicitator and it works beautifully and it's a very inexpensive alternate and it's a very quick installation too. It's also easy to put the E in tune if you try removing your pinky and focus the air across the air rather than into it.

I had a student who graduated this year and is now a music major, but we had a serious discussion early in her junior year, when she mentioned she'd like to get a music degree. She h...

Rythmn advice

I have a HUGE problem. I'm an 11th grader. I'm pretty good at the flute but I have a major major weakness that holds me back from everything. Rythmns. I can't play them. I count them out loud and everything but I can never get them right. The only way I can get it right is if I hear it played by som...
