I'm 26, uruguayan, and have been playing flute for a little under a year now, which actually translates into eight months because of the four months I spent working on Antarctica this summer (winter for those of you in the north). I'm in love, though. It all started for my liking of rock and jazz (I've been playing rock and blues guitar for ten years now). It was sort of backwards: I've always liked classical music, but I payed attention mostly to strings. It was after hearing some jazz flute and Jethro Tull when I started to listen to winds, and specially flute in classical music. So, after years of doubts (I mean, what sort of instrument sounds lower the more fingers you put down?!? ;)) I decided to get a flute and a flute teacher, and now, as I said, I'm in love.
