i would like to learn but i'll wait long long to touch one -.- haha..
becuz my band doesn't allow different section touching each other instruments XD


are u kidding? ur band at school or for extracurriculars? wow, you guys can't even touch each other's instruments? that sux, but i do have to say this, it's better to learn an instrument when u have one and is able to practice on it, but, if u want to learn this way, it's fine by me. ^.^


haha my bands is at school.. i just find playing flute is nice.. the sound is so sweet ^^


ohhh, i see. well, the flute does have a very nice sound, very high pitched and smooth. Playing the flute is actually really similar to playing the clarinet. the only big difference is you hold it horizontally instead of vertically. You also have to press keys to make a sound, just like the clarinet. But there are no holes to cover on the flute, just completely keys. i think the flute has less keys than the clarinet so it could be easier. ^^

well, kind of, you have to use big breathes with the long notes, but at the same time, the sound have to be smooth, and holding the flute up for too long can be kinda tiring for your arms. The only hard thing is to learn to make a sound. You have to blow it correctly for the sound to come out correctly. If u blow incorrectly, the sound will come out kinda hollow and u'd hear more of the sound of air blowing out than the actual note.

^^ i see, but the sound comes out better, flutes sound so hollow when you don't blow it right, it's so easy to mess up the sound. >.<
