Re: Jackie Evancho, Connie Talbot, Zachary Kellogg and other

haha..I just saw this post today - but I thought I'll comment anyways. I love Jackie Evancho so much!!!!! Her voice is just amazing! And of course her voice will become better and better just like any other person who practices a talent. Practicing a talent at a young age will make them blossom when...

Key defect?

Hey Everyone, I've just got a new flute, and it sounds great! I was playing it a few minutes ago, then placed it down to arrange my sheet music. I picked up my flute again, and noticed one of the keys won't play when I play. I tried a scale, and all the keys worked perfectly except one key. What hap...

I have braces to with rubber bands, and the bands
really wreck my sound. I was quite worried about
getting my braces off in a year, because I was sure
the long stay of braces would make my sound worse,
so now I am VERY relieved that it won't wreak my sound
getting them off!!!

Hey MISHUGINA,

Wow I've never heard of that before.
Is this boy holding his flute correctly? His
left thumb should not rest in the way of the
thumb key, it should rather be tilted or
held more up. Double check his holding on the
flute!!!
Hope this helps

Isn't there a way to try to get a flute scholarship...like a flute playing record sent somewhere? Any way, if you don't want to shoot really big - just to play - like you said why don't you do a split major, not totally flute. If you want to really major in flute, try to get a scholarship, and go to...

Hey Heirii, I can't really help, as I am only 14 yr. old but beginning 11th grade now and have been playing the flute for only half a year. Some tips are to narrow down your choices. Which state do you want the college to be in? How top do you want to go - do you have a scholarship to any colleges? ...
