Flute is not an easy instrument!
« on: March 20, 2020, 03:51:39 PM »
I've had this thing about 2 years now and I still can't play a tune properly on it. Beginners will struggle to get below low E. I can just about get D.
When I got my clarinet I was playing tunes within a week!
You don't stop playing when you get old, you get old when you stop playing.

I quickly gave up the flute. It was just too difficult. I could never get a good embouchure and air flow; after 10 or so minutes I would be so out of breath I would start to feel dizzy and almost pass out.
