  • Breathing & Playing

    One of the difficulties that we face as flutists is the need for large volumes of air. This is further aggravated by the need to take breaths in quickly, since many composers often write long phrases or long passages of fast moving notes for the flute.

    The following is an exercise that I practice, and that I have my students practice as well, to train ourselves how to breathe and play in the most seamless possible way.

Altissimo Flute Fingering & Trill Charts

The Altissimo Flute Fingering Chart & Altissimo Flute Trill Chart are the perfect companions to Alternative Fingerings for the Flute.

The Altissimo Flute Fingering Chart is a subset of the Quick Reference section of Alternative Fingerings for the Flute, intended for both students and professional flute players alike. The fingering chart displays fingerings from B0 to G4, with special emphasis on the high register. Printed on both sides and made of durable plastic material, it is the perfect size to fit in any flute case for quick reference.

The Altissimo Flute Trill Chart is a guide for all trills, including those seen less frequently. The trill chart features easy to follow fingerings from C1 to D4, and includes options for the C#-trill key. It is printed on a handy plastic card that fits in your flute case.
