well, what I was told (and this was from another student, so I cant verify it completely) is that you flex and unflex your diaphram muscles as you play, and depending on the speed at which you do that, you can get different sounding vibrato. When a friend demonstrated it, it seemed to work, but as I said before, I have no idea if thats that professional or "official" method.

yeah they have pretty much covered it. I had to "opera sing" just pulse your diaphram...this is best used for lower notes... when you get that down you can open and close your throat. that is harder though.

hi. Um i do vibrato on the flute. this is how my teacher toaught me how to do it. Do stomach kicks. Basically like blow out air (sorta like panting) oo oo oo oo oo. yeah. its hard to explain. then use your flute and pick out a middle not u like. do the stomch kicks on the note. Then sorta slur `em together. once you get the feel for it go faster and faster. eventually u`ll make it a habbit. thanks. bibi.
