Beautiful, soothing woodwind instrument which always makes you at peace.
The flute belongs to the woodwind family and produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening. The pitch of the sound is changed when the player opens or closes the various holes in its body. Beginners’ flutes are often made from nickel or silver-plated brass whilst professionals use solid silver, gold and sometimes even platinum flutes. Wooden flutes produce a dark sound whereas silver flutes produce a brighter sound.
Woodwind instruments are easier to learn than string instruments or keyboard because pupils can make progress quicker on them and are able to learn three notes in the first lesson. It is a versatile instrument and is used in classical, jazz and modern band ensembles.Playing the flute is relaxing, improves co-ordination, concentration and self-discipline.
