HIGH SCHOOL UPDATE

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Your love and support really worked! I made my symphonic band as a freshie! I got 6th chair out of 8 symphonic flutes and   7 concert flutes. So how did auditions go? I did all of my scales and arpeggios in 2 octaves (minus Bb, which is the end of me so I only did it in one octave), ALMOST flopped on my chromatic but MADE IT, played my prepared exercise LIKE A SAVAGE, and then the wheels had to come off at sight reading that I'm pretty sure was grade 4 1/2. ANYWAYS, I love ALL of YOU who motivated me! THANKS!

How to be heard over rest of band?

So im in marching band and I'm the only flute out of 16 hornline, mostly brass...

I keep trying to play louder but it always goes up an octave or makes an awful screeching noise. Even though I have been playing for about two years, I've never found a solution to the problem.  I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on how to play louder but still sound good during competitions.

Circular Breathing

So, I made it my goal to try and play Flight of the Bumblebee before my High school experience ends and I need help learning how to do circular breathing. I've seen videos as to how to do it and have been trying for a week with no progress. I'm only in Grade 10 at the moment and is halfway through semester 2. That means I've got more than two years to do this. Can anyone give me some tips? I've got my technique down for the flute and I think that I'm pretty decent--tone and tonguing wise. The only thing that needs work is breathing for me. I'd appreciate it if you could also give me some tips regarding my breathing. 
Thanks!

Help on a Trombone Part

in Brass

I arranged City of Stars to be played with a trumpet, piano, and trombone. The trombone that it was designed for is relatively new at the instrument so I wanted the trombone part to be pretty easy. If you could look at the trombone part and give feedback on both the skill level needed to play it and how that part works with the rest of the song that would be great. Thanks!

The Violin

A violin is taken to hospital. The doctor examines her and says:
"There's nothing wrong with you. But you broke your bow. How did that happen?"
Violin: "I only remember the thunderous applause for the composer."
Doctor: "Do you remember his name?"
Violin: "No. I think he was on the first page of the sheet music."

Sie werden gleich für eine atemberaubende Hochzeit nach Italien gebracht

 
Leser, Sie werden für eine atemberaubende Hochzeit in den sanften Hügeln der Toskana nach Italien gebracht. Ich habe Lelia Scarfiottis wunderschöne Fotos mit einem stilvollen Foto verwechselt, als sie in meinem Posteingang landeten! Sie wirken wie Szenen aus einem Fresko der italienischen Renaissance: klassisch, romantisch und verträumt. 



Alles in dieser Ehe ist außergewöhnlich charmant; Zarte Blumen und hübsche Büromaterialien, im Temperley-Hochzeitskleid und beim Fairy Enlightened Wedding Breakfast. Machen Sie sich also bereit, sich in den wunderschönen Sonnen- und Olivenhainen von Castello di Vicarello, Toskana

, mit der Hochzeit unseres wunderschönen Paares Luiza und Joao zu verlieren.

"Alles in der Toskana hat mich inspiriert, vor allem aber die Schönheit der Natur, der Menschen und des Essens!" 

Luizas Kleid ist das Blumenkleid Laelia von Temperley London, eines meiner Lieblingsdesigner. Ich liebe dieses Kleid mit seinem Mieder von floralen Applikationen und seinem radikalen griechischen Zug, und Luiza zweifelte nicht an The One, da es im Internet entdeckt wurde.
