The flute is the "showoff" instrument
of the woodwinds. Now this
is all and good for a concert, but for a Marching Band? Hmm... In my experience,
a flute cannot be heard outside on a football field. The marching band
flute music usually just backs up the trumpets, and trumpets are know,
for their volume! My suggestion is to get a piccolo.
A few things to remember:
- Flute pads DO NOT like to get wet. If you play outside ,make sure
there isn't too much moisture in the air, and do not set it in wet
grass. If you have a wood piccolo, look into getting a plastic or
a silver one, wood piccolos don't like
moisture at all.
- IF you have to set your flute down, make sure it is not going
to be in a place that it will get broken. The flute is a beautiful
instrument to look at and to listen to, if it isn't all broken up!
