Hello dear woodwinds,
There are pieces for double bass and wind ensembles already, but they are rather difficult to listen to, so I've been arranging two pieces originally for double bass and piano; one of them to woodwind quintet, and the other one to concert band. I've been studying woodwinds a lot so I think I've made nice parts. Please have a listen:
Hello dear woodwinds,
Hi! I was wondering if anyone has found good High Hopes sheet music. Thanks!
I really wish I'd found this website earlier. It's awesome! Does anyone have any pieces they'd like to recommend? I have been playing the flute for 6 years and would love to have something more challenging than what is being offered in band. Unfortunately I only have a standard flute with none of the extra keys that advanced flutes have, so I can't go very high, but I know how to play some high level pieces. I really just want to do a cool solo for fun but I have no idea where to start. Can you help me?
Where are my *cough* fellow gamers who play the flute, I haven't seen many posts here about this kinda stuff and I feel lonely, let's just share some music so we can all feel lonely together.
Hello. I am a "Beginner" 7th Grade Flute player. I have been playing flute for about a year now and I'm pretty good. I need some music that is for a 7th grade flutist. Every time I try to find one, its way too advanced. Thank you guys.
I’m looking for some nice music if you could give so suggestions that would be great!
(I’m not too advanced, I’m in 8th grade and I have 3 years experience ((I’m in the 7th grade band since I moved, since I wasn’t there last year and it was a requirement to be in the 7th grade class before the 8th grade class, if that really makes a difference))
I've taken the liberty in transcribing the Traditional March Downfall of Paris.
Please leave your comments!

I'm in one of the first ensembles to play the piece, and if you can get your hands on it, you need to play it. It's a very Clarinet-heavy work, with an Oboe Solo (Clarinets play a second, hidden part, so I don't know if it's a solo), A trumpet solo, a Flute solo, and a Sax Quartet. Music for a gentler time indeed...
It might not be released yet, just look for the Clinton High School Wind Ensemble's performance of it in March. It may be released, I don't know. Just keep a look out.
(If I'm way to active, let me know)
Great emotional piece with some legendary oboe solos. Be sure to have mastered dynamic influence while going into notes, that's a key part in this song. Don't forget to breath, you'll need all the air possible for this one.
The craziest people I've ever known are double reeds. Like thinking about the strangest things for no reason, even though you have no interest in them. Maybe it's the back pressure getting to my skull.
Will let you know if I get any aneurysms lol
To all those who play the flute, what exactly do we call ourselves? Like people who play the clarinet are clarinetists, people who play percussion are percussionists, but what are we? Flutists? Flautists? Floutisits? Flutation devices?
Hiya fellow flautists,
Wondering if I could get any feedback on this Disney medley I arranged for the school flute quartet I play in. Any criticisms great appreciated xx
First off, I was wondering if anyone knew any techniques to help with having a longer playing time before taking a breath or any exercises to help with breathing too much when playing. I don't have a lot of lung opacity and I take a lot of breaths. Also, when I'm playing high notes sometimes my lips sorta buzz and I thinks it's my embouchure getting too small, but I just want some feedback on that and how to help that. Thanks!
we made an arrangement, based on the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps version of Drowsy Maggie.

Hey everyone, I play flute and have been for 3 years now, but all of my friends were just like "oh, why do you play flute when spit comes out?"
Dont people know its condensation lol
but still its annoying
Hi I've been playing flute for about 2 years now and I'm at the intermediate level. At a band camp I went to this summer, and got my vibrato down (with help from my director and a college student) that the guy at my solo and ensemble contest said I needed to learn....But then when the college girl who was helping me said 'oh you need to learn flutter tonging' I was like 'o wat' so now I need help.
Can you help me out on this one? I have a concert coming up and I don't want the notes to be all squeaky.
I have this thing whilst playing my flute and after playing a long note I take a very loud breath? What should i do? (all my friends anf family say they can hear me breathe when im doing performances!
Hey, I know this is a really weird question, but does anyone else have a problem where your face and hands get tingles/ pins and needles while plying the flute???
Because that happens to me sometimes in band
I finally finished what has, up until now, been known as 'Percussion Driven Work in Progress (End of Day ________)'. It's called 'The War Continues' and at seven minutes fifty seconds, it is the third longest piece I've composed and is most definitely by far the most complex. I tried to use flutes to bring in a lighter feeling amid the darkness in certain areas.
I want to say thank you to everyone who gave me feedback and advice--it REALLY helped.
'The War Continues'
