solo suggestions

Hello. I''m looking for a good solo piece to play for
my school concert. I would like a solo that has a piano accompaniment. It
can''t be too long but I want it to be interesting. The level of music i want
would be intermediate-advacned. Thanks!

Band Festivals

Do you mean what kind of bands do we have to try out
for? well if that's the question, we have area, region, state and then you can
go to all eastern. I live in new jersey by the way. [:)] And our band directors
also have to approve of us trying out.

pearl flutes?

Hi! If you are on a budget then Pearl flute is not a bad
flute to purchase. I tried the Pearl flute but as many others have said, it
isn't as great of quality as the Yamaha or other flutes. Good luck.

Natural?

i agree.. it is certainly possible for it to come natural but
you can't get into the habit of always playing with vibrato.. you need to know
how to play without it also. it is easy to fall into the habit of always playing
with vibrato when it comes naturally.
