Its not required to use a gizmo to hit top C. I only use it when I'm holding the C for a period of time.

Help with a music book...

I'm trying to find a book requested by my teacher. He told me its by Moyse and is called "Daily Excersises", or something to that effect. He also told me its the same size as the T&G book. Any help? If I could have the actual name or a link to fluteworld it would be great. Thanks.

you DO NOT need to purchese new pads, your pads are okay. Sticky pads are very common in flutes, all you need to do is buy pad cleaning paper. The Flute FAQ tells you how.

I've contacted Eric Whitacre about arranging. My concert band is doing this piece now, which is how I've gotten into it. We heard the vocal arrangement and it is just gorgeous. How many parts are in the choir form?

I actually know the whole story through my teacher, but I'm not sure I'm supposed to say (for whatever reason, if you guys aren't sure I don't think I should mention it). However, I will tell you that it involves money (of course) of Orpheus flutes. They ARE only distributing out of Nashville now.

Help with alto flutes?

So, I'm starting a flute choir and originally we we're going to use my flute teacher's flutes. Long story short-the deal fell through. Does anyone know where I can find a cheap, good-quality alto flute/bass flute? Or where I can rent some? I haven't called around locally yet, but I doubt that they h...
