don't buy it over the Internet!!!! If you are spending so much money, you have to be sure to get a great flute!!! Buying a beginner flute is one thing but, a professional is something else. really.

i absolutely agree. i can't believe someone even starts learning flute over the internet. I can assure you, you will never become big. You need a real teacher.

well, maybe your not in "good shape". Playing an instrument is like playing a sport. And if your tired you start making mistakes. That's normal. Try to play it very slowly and than increase the tempo very slowly. It will help. When your doing mistakes is also very helpful to take a small brake, to i...

In Slovenia there's is the same stereotype. Flutists are mostly women.
I know two male flutist and they are both a sensitive type of men. probably it's just a coincidence.

i didn't express well...i said that u can breath in thru your nose when u need to make a big breath in a short time. You might be doing it without knowing it. And sometimes it happens that u have to much air and u can breath it out thru your nose while playing.

coughing is defenetly not good. Flute usually helps cure some lung disease. Like asthma, or at least makes it a bit better.

how do you learn?

i'm very curious because I'm from Europe and I noticed that you (American flutist) are on very different levels at the same age. Where do most of you learn flute? Don't you have elementary music schools? You learn an instrument in high school? Who prepares you to go to college, a private teacher? Th...
