Why Would Flute Be A Good Choice?

The flute is one of the most common and popular instruments in the band or orchestra. The flute often plays the melody and has a beautiful tone. Getting a sound on the flute is similar to blowing across the top of a bottle. Once you can consistently make the sound, the keys on the main body of the flute are used to change pitches. While many girls choose to play the flute, it is not necessarily a girl’s instrument. There are boys in most school districts who are accomplished flutists. Flute is not a hard instrument to learn, but like all instruments, it does takes some practice to master.
