Are Auckland flute lessons for you?
The flute uses more air than any other wind instrument. For this reason people with larger lung capacities have some advantage over others in projecting tone or sustaining phrases. Interestingly, most flute players in schools are girls who tend to have smaller lung capacities than boys but this doesnt present any issues for girls!
The key physical consideration is mouth formation. Ideally the flute-players lips should be straight and smooth and of relatively normal size. An excessive overbite or protruding jaw could present problems but if the teeth are fairly well matched there should be no issues.
The flute is the prima donna of the woodwind instruments and involves expressive solo performances therefore the beginning student’s technical potential and expressive sensitivity will be assessed. Young people not interested in solo roles or quite complex techniques would probably be better matched with another instrument!
The famous flutist and Composer Lamar Stringfield used to say,“The best instruments should go to the beginners.” Although this hardly ever actually happens, our Flute tutors Auckland will at least help the Auckland flute student choose a reliable instrument.
Some factors to be tested when buying a new Flute are: a true scale, a homogeneous tone, a balanced response in all three registers; a good response to tonguing through all the range in the levels; even pads-seating; the same spring tension on keys; and suitable ease of assembly. The mechanics of the flute can be judged by asking a repairperson about the manufacturer’s reputation.
