Re: Introduction, and in a need of assistance plz

Yeah. The photos look good, but the details of the sale seem iffy. In reality a QUALITY student flute will cost you between $800-1100USD. That's the truth. Anything less is likely used and in dire need of service, or it is sub-standard Learning a classical musical instrument is not a cheap endeavor...

Re: Introduction, and in a need of assistance plz

Wait, they're even counterfeiting flutes? I mean, they're not Gucci bags or German car parts, I don't think copying Yamaha instruments is the most rentable endeavour out there... But it looks like I'm mistaken. Anyways, thanks for the tip, my teacher recommended me to get a Yamaha flute if I want to...

Re: Beginner lessons

I'm learning the basics how to play the flute these days, and have two 45 minute lessons per week after work, plus 15 to 30 minute "drill" sessions daily, where I practice the basic finger positions and repeating simple musical pieces faster and faster. And I think I'm progressing quite well! It isn...

Re: Able to play B,A,G but F, Eb are unable to play out

Re: Curious about Skype Lessons

Eh, I use Skype a lot to talk to my family abroad, and it's the main professionnal tool of my wife who teaches French using it. I wouldn't really trust Skype-based flute lessons, unless the teacher has an awesome mic and an excellent Internet connection: it's sometimes hard to hear the correct way t...
