Should I learn it by myself or join a class? 3 months ago
Entries from everyone
Can anyone point me to good online learning courses where I can start from basics of learning flute 4 months ago
I might be putting the flute on hold temporarily as money needs to be thought over for RAM and I need to focus on improving my piano and sight reading. 3 years ago
Have decided to take proper lessons at school as initial self lessons were tricky. 3 years ago
The flute I am using will be in the shop for the next two weeks (it just needs a simple set-up), so I will won’t get to play until then. Hopefully this won’t counteract the progress I have made recently. 5 years ago
I started 2 weeks ago. I don’t think my tone is very good, and I get a bit dizzy if I try to play for more than 45 minutes or so. Luckily I live with a flute player though, and she is very encouraging.
The fingerings are pretty easy so far, and I can almost play a C scale from low to middle C already.
Reading music, and playing clarinet for many years is probably a help, but I may eventually need to get a teacher to help me sort out my flute embouchure.
This is a fun instrument to be learning, though I wish I could come up with at least an hour a day (per instrument) to practice drums, guitar, clarinet, and flute. 5 years ago
Completed this goal 14 years ago in Mr. Petrucelli’s band. And in highschool, Mr. Randazzo was the best teacher ever!!! He has definitely influenced my teaching philosophy. I still play my flute today, often with my friend Ashley since she is on the same level as me. And of course, by coincidence, we both purchased the same green bamboo flutes, at the same time (only we were both 6 hours apart and had no idea…) So we play those together too. Hopefully I can acquire some students for lessons, because it is a great instrument and an even better experience when you are in a duet. 5 years ago
