The Notes For Flute start at the low C foot and go all the way up to the fourth octave high C. The High C is a pretty hard one to nail correctly. It gonna take quite a bit of practice to hit that high C. Although The C foot or “Lowest C” is commonly know as the lowest notes for flute, intermediate and professional flutes have the Low B foot which gives the flute greater range.
Here are the notes for flute to help get you started:
The flute is recognized as one of the oldest musical instruments. With archaeological finds of the flute manufactured using cave bear bones in Europe, it has been proven that ancient music enthusiasts developed the instrument over 40,000 years ago. However, the development of the modern flute is credited to Theobald Boehm. Boehm developed a flute that had an average of about 16 holes around it enabling the instrument to produce a greater variety of chromatic keys notes. Apart from wood, Flutes are also manufactured from silver. A flute is a woodwind instrument that produces sound when the air blown through its hollow cylinder creates a Bernoulli (compression variations in the flow of gas/air) in the holes positioned at different points on the tube. The variable sounds are therefore produced when the flutist seals or opens the various holes as he blows air into the flute. The volume is determined by the amount of air blown in.
Although the types of flutes vary greatly, they can be broadly categorized as either side blown or end blown flutes. The common side blown varieties includes the Picolo, the Fife and the Bansuri while the major end blown types are the Quena, recorder, the Shakuhachi among others. However, most notes for flutes rank the Picolo, the Contrabass, concert, bass and Alto flutes as the most popular on the modern music scene.
The Picolo is comprised of a head and body section and measures 33 cm in length. It is one of the smallest flutes and produces a deep reaching sound. However, the lack of a fooftjoint limits it’s capacity to play pitches lower than D. The concert flute is about 67 cm in length and has an extra footjoint section which affords it greater versatility in terms of pitch.
Whatever flute you choose, knowing how to care for it is important for you to continue enjoying its services for longer. Almost all notes for flutes recommend that you store your flute in a clean and dry place when not in use (preferably disassembled). Make it a point to clean you flute after use and avoid lubrication of any kind. It is also wise to have your flute undergo professional care and check-up once or twice a year.
