Welcome to your learning resource.
The flute has been around since the days of the caveman.
Originally made out of pieces of bone or wood, today the flute is made out of metal, and it is an essential piece of our musical world.
The flute has the highest pitch of any instrument, which helps add variety to musical arrangements.
Sound is produced when you blow air lightly over a hole in the end of the tube. This splits the air and creates a high pitched melodic sound that can be controlled by the different valves on the length of the tube.
We hope you enjoy learning about it!
