I don't really recommend Rubank. The Melodious and Progressive Studies books are great.

Beginner Flutist Seeking The Right Flute

I don't recommend yamahas,
because they tend to play sharp, so the head joint has to be pulled out alot to
play in tune. I highly recommend a gemeinhardt. I've played on one my whole
flute career, and absolutely love them.

Too young to start?

I started flute when I was three, I played on a
curved headjoint. I see no problem in starting her this early. That would mean
that she would have that much more experience.

Who plays in an orchestra?

We played Eine Klein Nacht Musik when I
played in the Youth Symphony, that's a really fun piece.

weird?

Ok, I was first chair in all County, and first in state. I landed
second chair in my band. The first chair didn''t even make all county. Does
anyone else find this fishy?

When I play with a band or orchestra, I read the
music note by note.

Switch to an offset G?

I actually disagree with everyone that has
posted thus far. I began playing on an offset G flute. Then when I got a new
flute, it was inline. I prefer inline over offset. It offers a better hand
position, in my opinion. But, it's a matter of personal preference.

You're not weird, I was able to play my new open
holed off set flute without the plugs the first time too.

Will playing the trombone affect how well I can play the flu

I play
every instrument in band, (my mom's a director) and playing another instrument
never really affected how I played the flute.

What flute method book do you use ?

I learned flute using the Standard
of Excellence books. It's a series of three books. Also, the Practical Studies
books by Ralph Guenther are good.

exersizes???

In band we do a warm up called lip slurs, they call it lip slurs, because the brass instruments lip slur it. the notes are based off of the Bb scale. The notes are 1-5-1-5 8-5-8-5 1-5-8-5-1 in other words, Bb-F-Bb-F then the Bb is played up an octave down to the F. Sorry if that's hard to understand...

theory practice books?

When I was in beginning band, we used the
Standard of Excellence theory books. They were really great for counting and
rhythms, and even had music history sections.
