I'd have to agree with what everyone ahead of this post has said, but keep in mind that this is your second year and that the basics may be down, but the music getting harder is the what will make it fun. Keep up the practice and I'm sure you'll do fine, oh, and if what you're talking about is anyth...

Personal favs, people tend to stick to what they like. I would also suggest the Trevor Wye, it help me with tone quality and was easy enough to skim to understand what the colors where ment to be. That and a few fun tunes to help along the way. ;) Other wise, easy things for begginers. Songs like 'M...

While everyone thinks about what its like to play the flute, the feeling, the emotions, ect, you have to remember the experience. A good example can be picked up by anyone who has marched a good show before, all that seems to happen is you start and the next moment, you're done. When you play someth...

You're never too old to pick up a new trick, and who ever said that old dogs couldn't learn new tricks was wrong. Not saying ya'll are old or anything, but that its never to late to learn. :wink: I love the flute and piccolo and think that those who take to playing the flute/picc at a later point in...

Wow, your child sounds like me not so long ago when I got my current flute that I am practically head over heals for. Ashley will know by now what she plans on doing in college, or a ruff outline of it. If she is playing in the top band of a school known for its bands, then you should look into some...

lol Personwise, yes, most trumpets around my school can be a bit... *thinks of decent word to use* Stuck up at times. Most annoying for me to listen to would have to be the oboe. *shivers* A good player sounds great, but around here, you're screwed. I know, I sat by one this past concert season. Two...

I had no braces for about the first week I started playing the flute, so I had the hard time of relearning it w/o them three years later. Braces are beaches if you ask me, only good to get away w/ chewing gum in class, but even so, all they do is teach you to: 1.) Adjust your mouth position to what ...

Well Claiken, don't feel bad about that. Not all people can get a picc to make any sound the first time they pick one up. It just takes time for everyone to learn to play. No worries :wink:
