going for great

I know that about 90% of this board is people over the age of 10 which would be about the age level of this fiction book (I read it in about less than an hour, though I''m a speedy reader). And though it is not the highest reading level, it''s a good fiction story about a flutist whereas there aren'...

[quote] ---------------- On 2/5/2004 6:53:03 PM Why are flutes in marching bands; you can hardly ever hear them. Is anyone here in a marching band? ---------------- [/quote] Actually, piccolos are quite sufficient for marching band (can be heard from far away and are loud). In a school band, flute m...

Bath Time

Like a said, we couldn't put any woodwind instruments in
water because of the pads. If the pads got wet they would mold and not be useful
in cover holes.

+100 things to think about . . .

Have you ever heard that playing an instument is good for the mind and been like "Okay thanx for the info." but not actually knowing why? Well the reason is it stimulates the mind because you need to remember so many things at once such as: -correct posture -correct finger placement -tonguing -beat ...

What is Your Opinion on Male Flutists?

It think it is true about the higher pitch thing. I agree totally. Strong low instruments such as trombones, tubas, and baritones are most guys first picks, but what does that say about trumpets who rarely play low or alto saxophones? Mostly guys play those two instruments in my band and that doesn'...

[quote] ---------------- On 1/23/2004 9:18:52 AM It is hard to say what level you shoul be playing at. Different countries seem to have different criteria to be met for each level.
