sorry it took so long to reply. for things like this i take a deep breathe right before i start playing and let myself get lost in the music and play how i think it should be played. it helps if you spend all your spare time practicing the solo and the parts you need to work on the most. i hope this helps a little and again sorry it took so long to reply i haven`t been able to get on for a while

hm ask your band director if they have a small screwdriver made for it and see if you can tighten it and if that doesnt work take it in to a rapair shop. i usually have my section leader or lesson teacher look at it for me

Screws are falling out? When did you last service your flute? You should service it yearly and they tighten al the screws and that sort of thing, but if it has recently been serviced then this cannot be the problem ;) Do you have a flute screwdriver? (you should always keep one) If you have experience in what you're doing, you could put them back in yourself, but if not, take it to a music shop as any tightening or loosening of screws will alterr your rod's position. Hope this helped a little :P x

When I played this piece, it was about 4 years ago I think, I left the gracenotes out for a while, and then as I grew more confident I put them in. First play them as if they are two seperate notes, then slur them, and then gradually make them quicker. Repetition is the key here. You should aim so that the gracenote falls just before the beat, and the big note on the beat. If it's an acciaccatura grace note it needs to be played as quickly as you can manage, but if it's an appoggiatura grace note, then you can play them a little slower. Good luck! x

That's good! :P Yeah, have you done theory? I did my Grade 5 music theory a while ago, and you have to learn all the French, Italian, German and Latin musical terms. ALL of them. It was tough XD

Hehe. x
