1. I can’t do orchestra this semester because I got a job that conflicts with it but I found out they’re doing Schubert 8 and now I’m so jealous.

  4. Summer update

    Hey guys, I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted or even reblogged anything. I went on a trip to Seattle last week and started a new job that has me working five days a week. Orchestra has been out since May and I haven’t been able to play in flute choir since January. Sadly my flute has gone relatively unloved this summer besides a couple practice sessions.

    I just wanted to apologize for the lack of posts and to let you all know I’m still here :) Hope you guys are having wonderful summers.

Famous excerpt: The obbligato piccolo solo from Stars & Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa, beginning at the double bar line, marked Grandioso.

It’s that time of year again.

  7. Anonymous said: I have a tiny problem. I've been playing the flute for about seven years now, and I did try to play the piccolo once because my band teacher brought one in when I was a fifth grader. I was never able to play it that well because I have large fingers. Now that I'm about to start my first year at college I am told that to be in the marching band that they want all flute players to play piccolo. What should I do if I can't play one? I don't want to quit band.

    You’ll be able to learn piccolo okay, especially if you’ve been playing flute for seven years and having large hands is your only disadvantage. I’m a guy and I have pretty large hands; picking up the piccolo at first after only playing the flute is always, always going to feel weird. But trust me when I say that after enough practice on the piccolo, it will feel just as natural as playing flute. :)

This is my face when people try to justify putting a flute on a stand (especially wire stands) by saying “it was just for the picture.”

    It’s the last two lines of Lisbon, the first movement of Lincolnshire Posy by Percy Grainger :)
