Do I need to change my flute!!????? 05:12 on Saturday, December 25, 2004
Hello to everybody...
I am in the 4th level in the flute here in Milan,Italy and I am still using my Gemeinhardth 2sp, the flute where I started to play... sometimes my teacher says that I need to change it because I am already in a higher level but sometimes he also says that it is still ok... I`m only curious if I need to change it or not for my level... Can you please help me...

I have been playing for a while myself and I haven`t changed my flute. I have asked my teacher about it and he says that if you feel like your not getting the best results out of your flute you should consider changing it.
I hope that this helps.

"...if you feel like your not getting the best results out of your flute you should consider changing it..."
However, some people would play no better - indeed possibly worse - on a $20000 flute, because the limiting factor of their playing is their embouchure etc. So it may be little to do with what you "feel like".
A new flute will almost always give a psychological lift for the player. But that does not necessarily mean the player is playing better. They may just THINK they are, temporarily, until the endorphins wear off.
