PRACTICAL BOOK

The flute comes very well packed in the case. It has black plastic protectors over the joints and little foam wedges to prevent the keys from moving during shipping: that's great attention to details

Information book

So far this book is great. I played the flute in our middle school band many, many, many years ago and wanted to start playing again. I had forgotten many of the notes but this book clearly shows the finger positions for the notes and provides excellent exercises for learning

I got the teal flute for my daughter to learn to play, I have played the flute for 23 years and it sounded great when I played it, the keys don't stick and the pads cover the holes completely. We will see how well is fares throughout the upcoming months and years

Highly recommended

My brother wants to learn the art of playing the flute and I bought this book for him. From this book, he got the information about types of flutes, getting to know the flute, how to choose a flute, repair and maintenance, understanding music notation, keys on the flute and fingering chart, embouchare, vibrato, slurring and tonguing, playing music charts and much more.

5STAR

I'm happy with this purchase. It has many familiar pieces that are fun to play. Almost every piece is dumbed down, so that was kind of disappointing, but I'm sure they have to do that because of copyright laws.

Useful book

I bought this flute for my 11 year old daughter almost 6 months ago when she suddenly decided she wanted to join band. I was not ready to shell out big bucks for something that might be a passing interest like the guitar I bought her the year before.

Wonderful book

Awesome book. I am an adult that has always wanted to learn how to read music. I had no idea there was so much more involved than just knowing what letter each note corresponded too

PRACTICAL BOOK

The structure and division of these concepts is well-paced and laid out. In each lesson, there are audio examples (which you're given a download link for when you get the book) which really help you understand the application of the concepts being discussed

I bought a C Key Dizi, never having played any kind of flute before. I can already play almost two octaves on it, and it sounds phenomenal. I liked it so much I decided to pick up a second Dizi

must listen to it

Best buy out there, especially if you are a beginner. I am not, but didn't want to spend a thousand dollars on a new flute.
Unfortunately I never received the advertised stand, otherwise I was very satisfied and you'll not find more satisfactory flute for that low, low pric
