*gasp*

Does anyone have any tips for getting the most out of your air? I am just starting out on flute which I am already loving, but I run out of breath really quickly. It's probably because I go an octave higher by breathing harder even though I'm not really supposed to do that. HELP PLEASE!!!!!

Pianist composes for violin?

Hi! I just started playing violin, it's very hard as a pianist, especially when the violin does not use finger 1 so I always get confused... Anyways, if there are any beginner violin players, this one you can play along to: https://musescore.com/colorsofsound1/scores/5376916
P.S. It's weird composing for violin, I'm so used to a keyboardლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ But, feel free to check out my profile. :)

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!
