Any flutists out there?

Play more than piano? Interested in a different instrument, including voice? Talk about it here.

Curious who else plays the flute. :D I'm a grade 8 RCM flute and piano student. I also have played the clarinet a bit, I have one, and I got to about Grade 4, but school and 3 hours of other music practice really fills up my day. I don't want to loose it tho, and I'm going to go back to it. :D Anybody else??

Well,

I played the flute, (note the past tense) in high school, and I could still pick it up and play it, but I have no lip anymore. My mother plays flute, and teaches piano, and a piano student of mine also plays flute and is phenomenal.

My dad used to make me play Irish flute jigs, by whistling them to me and making me figure them out. Helped my ear a lot!

Singing was my first love. I don't know how I would teach piano without it.

I'll answer this question, since I set up and run the Board. When a Member reaches 25 posts, they are automatically promoted to Super Member. Super Members have a number of privileges not granted to Members, including the ability to edit their own posts after posting. For more information, see Member Levels under Board Help. This promotion in privileges is designed to encourage Members to post and participate, rather than simply reading others thoughts.

Princess,

Teaching yourself to sing would be difficult. You might be able to find a book or CD to help you, but you need help with feedback from a qualified person. Proper breathing is very important. You might want to try singing with a chorus. You will get some help there, and meet others who enjoy singing.

I wish I knew how to play pedal steel guitar. The sound always moves and touches me.

I taught myself how to play the autoharp, and its fun to play. :)

I play the recorder, for fun sometimes, too.

Dr. Bill, wouldn't it be a great idea if there were a musical edition of Trivial Pursuit? All the questions would be music related, and it would be a fun way to test knowledge of historical music facts from composers' biographical facts, their compositions, style, titles, dates, countries, historical times, to musical periods and their respective composers, instrument development as well as theory and harmony?

Perhaps it is already available!? ???

It must be - they have everything. If not, we could all make up one!

There are also many varieties on Mononpoly - a Boston one, A Red sox one, and others.

I am not good at trivia, my granddaughter usually beats me at Monopoly, (she HAS to have Boardwalk and Park Place and will bargain anything to get them).

I can sing and play the piano fairly well.

At music camp, many years ago, I tried a lot of instruments - there were 16 girls in the cabin - so many choices. I like the drums and percussion.

Now, what was the mani topic here?

:p

That's a grand idea. We could do it, we just need to brainstorm on how to go about it.

The key to Monopoly is Park Place and Boardwalk. No wonder she always beats you! :laugh:

Funny how things happen! Just received a Music Stand catalog and lo and behold - "new, Happy Holidays Game" It is only about Christmas music - but a trivia game of 60 cards with 100 questions. It is $29.95. I may purchase it. It would be fun for my students. It could be a start for 'our' game.

Years ago, I made up some questions about some composers and compositions - easy to hard. I began with "Who was the Waltz King?""Who was king of the march?" "Who wrote some of our most favorite folk tunes?" "What is the time signature for waltzes?" "How many symphonies did Beethoven write?" I could look them up for starters. I imagine there is a way to put these on cards of some kind on the computer.

Joan

Have you ever printed up business cards on your computer?

If we type the questions out, we could then print them on business card stock, and decorate them with musical notes, the staff, clefs, or anything else you could imagine. The questions and answers would appear on the reverse side.

I'm sure we could easily come up with 100 questions, and save the $29.95. In fact, we could come up with at least ten times that amount!

:D
