I'm playing this for solo festival too!
all I can recommend is extra work on double tonguing...the allegro movement really shines when you can flawlessly articulate at a quick tempo

well I would say yamaha. In the past I have been a firm believer in gemeinhardt but as I advance, a yamaha, I think would have done a much better job.

well, I marched with my open-holed flute, because I don't sound very nice on my student flute and it's a piece of poo. but having a student flute to march with DOES come in handy. I remember marching at a half-time show and it was pouring down rain, and I just remember my friend julie bringing her n...

well, I'd keep the pro flute at home and take the intermediate to school. so durability shouldn't be an issue. but, I have switched instructors and I'm improving rapidly so now I'm beginning to wonder whether or not to get one. But, it's an investment, a nice big investment. there are also other thi...

even though I own a gemeinhardt, I would say yamaha. I don't know, but after playing on a yamaha, it just feels like the tone is less stuffy or more crisp, I should say. however, it is all about personal preference...gemeinhardt used to have top of the line beginner and intermediate flutes, but from...

well, I don't think this post will be much help. but lately I've been listening to khatchatourian's concerto for flute and orchestra, and it is awesome. It sounds exteremely hard though. Melizzard also mentioned Devienne's concerto in E minor and reinecke's sonata in E which are both great pieces.. ...

ahhhh I get that too! right after marching because the flute HAS to be parallel and I used to get the cramping in my left hand while playing C when I first began. you'll get used to it and eventually it will go away. Just keep practicing and it'll make your muscles stronger! so don't let this minor ...

hmm, you should know your scales G through D flat two ocataves and a, d, g, and c minor, you should be working on phrasing, dynamics, and tonguing. A good grade three solo is Meditation by thais, It gives a lot of room for expression.

I think the B foot makes a big difference. The difference in sound is huge compared to a c foot flute. And having an open-hole flute is good for fake fingerings, giving the flute a darker sound or a brighter sound. And I think open-hole does make a difference in your sound. Mozart's Andante is the o...
