LOL!! I'm glad someone else dislikes this piece besides me.....I love Faure, but don't care for for the chord structure of this piece....it's on our district list here in NC and every four years, I've have to hear that piece about 20 times a week and it grades on my nerves after a few weeks.

I am a flute teacher and I have several intermediate kids on both Pearl and Aprenti...I love the Aprenti...yes, it's the JR Altus line. I've found that kids much like one over the other, never had a kid like both...so it's a personal choice..they are both great flutes in that price range. I am not c...

pearl flutes?

LOL!!! It's amazing how different we all are...I personally am not a huge Yamaha fan, the ones that my kids bring in (the new ones, not the older ones) play out of tune with themselves in the octaves and don't do much for me as far as sound. Now I do like the Pearl...the main problem with the Pearl ...

Syrinx and Density 21.5

Density is rather strict in tempo, much, much more so than Syrinx. If you look through the Flute Music by French Composers, almost all of those pieces are dedicated to teachers of the French Conservatory. Suite Modale, the Burton Sonatina, the Poulenc Sonata.. there are quite a few out there with de...

Nasty notes on the flute

That "Burning" Left Upper Arm

I think my adult students tend to have more achey body parts than the kids do...I think one reason is obvious, our muscles aren't quite as flexiable and forgiving as theirs and also I think, as adults, we think about what we are trying to achieve more, therefore, tightening up muscles. My first ques...
