How did you get into flute playing?

Hi, I started in 7th grade which seems late, but to us it was perfect timing. I have been playing flute for 6 years now and I adore it.

different flutes

I have to do a research paper on different types of the
flute family. I have the basic ones such as picc, alto, bass,e-flat and
contrabass. Does anyone know of other types of flutes? Thanks![:bigsmile:]
