The transverse flute is a wind instrument that gets dirty quickly. The fact of using it forces you to touch it with your hands, increasing the dirt constantly. In addition, the blow leaves traces of saliva that remains embedded inside this instrument. To make it sound good, you have to keep it carefully, that’s why we explain how to clean a transverse flute easily.
The flutist builds the sound with his studio. This is the most important thing. The air column vibrates inside the tube and this vibration comes from the piper’s breath, thus creating the sound we hear.
The record of the transverse flute is three octaves starting from C 4 to C 7. To understand this, let’s think about the piano keyboard: C 4 is the fourth C that appears on the keyboard (located in the central area) and C 7 is the seventh C on the keyboard. Also between one do and the next there is an octave, therefore between do 4 and do 7 there are 3 octaves. This record can be expanded from 3 octaves to three octaves and a fair fifth. This is starting from si 2 to fa # 7.
The notes are related to keys and the additional bass note. In this case, it is an additional key that makes the transverse flute more expensive. The highest notes are achieved with the execution of harmonics. This is a technique that much practiced performers can achieve. To better understand the sound of the notes, we show you the piano keyboard and there you can see the three octaves we are talking about.
The traverse flute has a key system, this is called a mechanism and there are several types. At the foot of the flute, there can be two different mechanisms:
In the flute body, it can be the inline sun. This means all keys are aligned, misaligned sun and mechanism in my party.
In order to play the transverse flute, you must first know how to locate the left hand, which is the one that marks the first notes on the DO scale, and then place the fingers with the right to obtain the other musical notes.
We will see some notes and the positions of the hands and fingers to achieve them. This seems very difficult at first because you have to work with your fingers in different positions to achieve the exact note. It requires a lot of practice to change later how to combine the sounds. We will teach you to place the fingers of each hand on the corresponding keys to obtain the notes. Always clean your flute when you finish using it and it in its case and avoid hitting.
