#WHAT SHOULD WE CALL PICCOLO

The ramblings of a mostly-sane flute/piccolo player.

Has anyone ever actually finished a cork grease thing

suchbandwow asked: Hey! I've been playing piccolo for about two months now (flute for 5 years), and I'm doing pretty solid. I am only really having trouble getting the high F trill. I can get all the other trills, its just the high F that I can't squeeze out... do you have any advice for maybe hitting it one day? Thank you so much :D

Make sure you’re using the right fingering!

Don’t squeeze! Your neck/mouth/face/chest/body should be open and loose. The power comes from your diaphragm area. 

Roll out a tiny bit and make sure the piccolo is a little higher on your lip than your flute normally is. 

Get some ear plugs and then try. It’ll encourage you to use more air because your ears aren’t in danger of being murdered.

*****************Get a flute teacher and ask them! That’s the best advice I can give without hearing you play!***************

Milan and Nicole's orchestra trip to Carnegie Hall!

fortheloveofcello:

Hi followers, 

As most of you know, I play the cello.  This year, our high school’s orchestras have been selected to perform at Carnegie Hall (which, if you don’t know, is a world-renowned concert hall in New York City).  Our trip is in the spring, and this is more or less a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m so excited about it!  

I also have a younger sister who plays the cello as well.  We’re in the same school now, so we both get to go!  However, that means the cost doubles.  

So, if you could possibly donate to our Crowdrise account (a fundraising site), we would be extremely beyond grateful.  Anything you donate would be appreciated so much!


Thank you so much for reading everyone, and have a great day (or night)!! <3
