Can't play F, E and D.

Post by afluteplayer » Mon Jun 02, 2014 4:13 am

I can't play any notes that require me to use my right hand when playing. My next lesson is Thursday when I can ask my teacher but I would like to practice before then, if possible. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong visually (dents, tears in the pads etc). Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? It was perfectly the last time I played and now this time it's just not working. What is wrong and how can I fix it?

Thank you :D

Just because you cannot see it does not mean there is nothing wrong. I would go have your flute checked out.

Even on cheap flutes, you should be able to hit those notes easily if the flute is adjusted properly.
