how to tell a teacher you're moving on..?

I've been taking private lessons from my teacher for 3 years now. He has taught me just about everything I know about the flute! He's helped me accomplish many things. But I feel like he's not teaching me anything anymore. Of course, at first having lessons with him was wonderful, and gave me the ad...

sonare flute

I know it''s a division of powell, but is it any good? I''m still thinking about buying a professional model flute because I have decided that I want to do something with the flute in my life and I''m wondering if a good sonare flute would be a good step-up flute from a gemeinhardt intermediate flut...

Bach's Badinerie

Take it very slow; use a metronome and just practice. I played this piece for an audition, you don't have to play it like rampal or galway, playing it at 100-110 is fine. And don't listen to other people play it fast, because it will only make you more anxious and make you play it faster. But for ri...

Problem with Second Octave Notes!

Don't worry, they will come, just keep practicing, that is the best thing to do!! Do you know your F major scale? If so, practice the top octave in whole notes, just go up and down the scale *be sure to breathe and fill from bottom up*. Make sure the notes come out, and within a couple of weeks, you...

Haynes? Gemeinhardt? Jupiter? Powell?

I totally agree. I think a solid
silver gemeinhardt would suit me best. I now think that those flutes are a
little while down the road. Maybe I'll get one before college. we'll see, but
for the meantime, I'll check out the silver flutes. Thank you all so much!
THANK YOU! Leanne

Haynes? Gemeinhardt? Jupiter? Powell?

Our computer was down due to the sasser worm.[:knockout:] Anyway, my lesson teacher also plays saxaphone and he's always talking about how great the selmer VI was and how he's upset they don't make it anymore. Your advice helped a lot but I'm s...

solo suggestions

Oh nevermind on the easy pieces. You're a good
player. Yeah, I recommend the Faure and the mozart, they're high school grades
four and meditation is grade 3.

solo suggestions

well, I don't really know what you mean by intermediate to advanced, but I'll throw some out. Meditation by Thais (I think someone already said this and it really is a wonderful solo) Badinerie by Bach Fantasie by Faure (This is one of my favorites!) Concerto in G or D by mozart (either one is beaut...
