Haynes? Gemeinhardt? Jupiter? Powell?

Leanne~ It sounds like you have really been moving along with your flute playing. I would guess that if your teacher says you are ready that you may very well be ready. I have read many discussions about what flutes are considered professional flutes. Some say if it is solid silver, open holes, poin...

Hi~ I haven't posted in a long time here but your post caught my eye because I live in Mn. From your post I assume you are in Mn. I would recommend getting a flute teacher if you don't have one already. I have learned that a lot of what you accomplish will not only involve skills but also connection...

Goosman headjoint

<< I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy one>> Hi, Good luck with your headjoint. I personally think that adding a different headjoint...whatever your choice may be can be a good thing. Right now I am looking at a used Drelinger that makes my flute sound like a different flute. Flute purchase discussion'...

Lark flute manufacturer??

Hi Ali, Welcome to the board. I have not heard of those flutes. My guess would be that they are mass produce similar to the ones made for department stores. It could be that you are having trouble getting the lower register because you are new to playing the flute When playing the lower register you...

Courtney~ Thanks for the tip. My daughters teacher said that she can bring a guest to a couple of her classes with her instructor so we might just try that and then see what happens. Kim <<Kim, the book I mentioned may be difficult to find. I could only buy it through the class. If you can't go to t...

sticky pads!

<<will tracing paper work? (clean one)>> I don't know about that or not. I guess I would worry that tracing paper may be abrasive. You can get cigarette papers at most convenience stores but most likely a parent would have to buy those for you.I wanted to mention also that if you do go with the ciga...

sticky pads!

Hi~ I wanted to agree about not using a dollar bill...most of the time those are very dirty and you would do more harm than good. The black on your headjoint tenon is probably only tarnish so there really isn't anything wrong with it unless it is getting tough to get your headjoint on. You can buy a...

Courtney, Thanks for replying. My daughters teacher has recommended the classes to her and I have talked to her teacher about some issues that I have had while playing and it sounds like they might be helpful to me also. Trying to schedule the classes around our schedules would be interesting so I t...

<<Also I think it is great that these mothers of flutists involve themselves with their childrens playing, however I would like to hear more from them in this forum.>> I guess I would be one of "these mothers".

Has anyone here taken classes on the Alexander Technique? Courtney, I know that you mentioned taking a course once. I was wondering if reading some of the books would be as beneficial ? There is a book called What Every Musician Should Know and was wondering if the books would be enough to get learn...

Do you practice sitting or standing ?

Well the board seems to have slowed down once again so I thought it would be a good time to ask a question that I have been thinking about. When you practice, do you sit or stand ? I usually sit when practicing. Occasionally I will stand when practicing...but I seem to be able to concentrate more wh...

Flutes with curved head joints?

I was curious did you get the Armstrong that you mentioned? I know that those curved headjoints are only meant for creating an easier reach but it might be a neat thing to have. I posted about the alto flute that I got to check out a couple of weeks ago. The curved headjoint did not seem to affect t...
