You might want to try taking a few pauses in your playing. Also maybe try and do something different with the long notes withe...

I think the best thing to do is to play it all the way through without stopping. Even if that means "fudging" through stuff. This will give you a feel as to specific sections that you need to work on. I like to put some of those mini colorful sticky notes around the hard sections. This forces my eye...

I guess my mail question is for anyone that has experience with these brands can list the pros and cons that they personally have towards them. I realize that picking the b...

Jazz Flute Pieces

I was wondering if anyone knows of any good solo Jazz Flute pieces with Piano accomp. I am looking for something fun that will show off my technique for my Senior Recital and I am trying to play unique songs and would like a really cool jazz piece rather than the standard classical ones.
