Did you know?

  • The flute belongs to the woodwind family of musical instruments. 
  • Most woodwind instruments require a wooden reed to produce a tone.  However, the flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening.
  • A musician who plays the flute can be called a flute player, a flautist, a flutist or, less commonly, a fluter or a flutenist.
  • There are many sizes of modern flutes: piccolo, flute, alto flute, bass flute, contrabass flute.
