When first learning an instrument, it is important to establish proper habits in tone production, posture and hand position. In the beginning, we focus on using the correct embouchure to produce a sound using the head joint of the flute. We also learn to put all three pieces of the flute together as well as where to place our fingers on the keys. Remember, your left hand stays closer to you with your fingers coming toward you; your right hand is farther away and your fingers face away from you. Please be patient and use caution; never grab hold of the keys! Watch these videos for assistance and have fun! Don't forget to use your cleaning rod and swab when you are done.
