[:bigsmile:] ---------------- [/quote] Go on the web to Google and type in
"sheet music flute" and you will get tons of sites for downloading music as well
as purchasing sheet music. One of my favorites so far is Jessica Welsh's
"Celtic music for the Flute"- It has a CD in it so you can hear how the songs
should sound. The CD is a great learning tool and the music is fun. You can get
that one on Amazon.com But there are lots of sites and lots of resources. Some
of the music from popular songs that is transformed for flute really uses very
high octaves and is difficult for beginners that are not skilled at playing the
3rd octave. But Jessica's book is great and easy to play. Good luck.

What kind of music are you looking to play?
In my local music store, they have several areas with flute music. A lot of the
books are music of 2001, 2002, 2003 or you can find sheet music for older
songs.

Most of the time the main melody on the
piano music is the very top line of the treble clef. In a pop tune it shouldn't
be hard to pick it out from the rest of the notes. There maybe an occasional
exception and some added notes for filler written by the editor. I think you can
buy a piano book and be able to pick out the melody. Highlight the notes with a
marker pen if you need extra help. just take some extra time sight reading and
adjust the tune as you go.
