How to attack playing a piece of music

When I want to attack a piece of music, I like to go to the kitchen and get a knife. Then I stealthily sneak up on it, and then I tell it "prepare to die!", and then I die it... Anymawho... I just play it how I feel it. Music is an artform of self-expression, and it can't be dictated by written word...

Trouble with High E Naturals

Try picking up the pinky on your right
hand... it made worlds of difference for me until i figured out my own mouth
problems on that note.

Flute Music

I write music a lot for many instruments and ensembles, and I want some tips. I have 2 songs that I want opinions on. So, if you have Finale 2002 or higher, or you have Finale Viewer (free to download at http://finalemusic.com/showcase if you want it) drop me an email and I will definately send them...

open hole trouble

I've found that my flute has MUCH better intonation when the plugs are out. About the vibrato question, under NO circumstances should a finger vibrato be warranted on any instrument. Vibrato is a more advanced technique because it takes the ability and experience. Hope I answered your question [:)] ...

How do I play vibrato?

Yeah, I agree with the diaphragm thing, but I got some pointers from the flute professor at Bowling Green State University. He said that when you figure out how to make the vibrating tone, play a straight whole note (no vibrato), then play a whole note with the vibrato pulse on the quarter note, the...

piccolo shopping

I play on a Gemeinhardt 4P, but I also have a Solid Silver headjoint that I actually use more often than the plastic. I got it from Ebay, but ebay is a big risk. Mine was $100, but it needed a repad, so just watch out. Other brands I would recommend include Armstrong (very sturdy entry-level piccolo...

emerson flutes

I've never owned an Emerson flute, but I've played a few. I like how the ones I played felt, and I would recommend them any day. I would buy one, but Gemeinhardt's where my heart is... that's all I play now. And on a sidenote, William Hung is my hero. He had the confidence to go audition, and he had...

What other instruments do you play?

I''ve been reading these forums for a little while now, and I was just wondering what other instruments you all play and how long you''ve been playing them. Obviously we all play flute (this is my 7th year on flute). For Me: Piccolo - about a year and a half Clarinet- about 5 years Alto Sax - about ...
