ABOUT THE FLUTE:
The flute is the smallest of the beginner instruments and plays very high. It is a very popular selection each year, but only a small portion of those wishing to play flute will be selected.
Flute players should have a slight “frown” to the upper lip with NO tear drop shape in the middle. Flute tones are produced by being able to focus an extremely small airstream to an exact location on the tone hole. The tear-drop-shaped lip will make it difficult to direct the air precisely. Flute players should also have agile fingers for moving this multi-keyed instrument through a fast musical passage. Students with extreme overbites (receded jaw) should avoid choosing flute as this makes it difficult to produce quality sounds.
Students with double-jointed fingers should avoid selecting flute as this can cause lack of agility in the fingers.
