C R A B R A V E

Since I am incapable of doing so myself, I am asking for someone who is skilled in the art of composition to compose a solo flute piece for "crab rave".

Please.

Help Plz!

Ok so I've been playing the flute for a while now, about two years, but I still have trouble keeping a consistent high note

So like, when I play a high note it goes in and out of being a high note and a low note

*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!!!!!

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!

Hi There!

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?

Sheet music please!

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))

Breathing & High Notes

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!

Flutter tonging?

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.
