Insider's playing secrets

The Flute Line is your chance to learn about the special techniques and skills that can help you play the flute well.

What is so great about taking private flute lessons? You learn all the tricks the professionals know from your teacher. What if you aren't taking lessons and you want to play better than you already do? In most cases you have to make do with help from your band director. This can be great if your band director plays the flute, but chances are, he or she plays something else like trumpet, drums or clarinet. What this means is they know a lot about teaching band skills like counting together, playing the right notes and playing in tune, but not a whole lot about the special techniques only flute players really know about.  Playing the flute is what this site is all about.
