So speaking of the Flute Academy, my assistant Rachel in the Flute Academy, she's my assistant flute teacher. She did the research for this video, and she clearly loves Disney because she didn't come up with one Disney video for you to guess the tunes for. She came up with multiple.

Disney flute tunes

So this is part one. Here are four Disney tunes. They all sound beautiful on the flute. And I wanna see if you know the name of the song and the movie that it came from. If you're on YouTube type the comments below if you know.

If you're on the blog, once you have worked out what you think they are, scroll down to the bottom of the blog and we'll have the answers for you there. But don't do that until you guess.

Okay, here is number one. Very beautiful on the flute.

Old Disney flute tunes

The crazy thing about these pieces in this video is that they're so much older than I realized. This movie is from 1959. I can't believe it. So that's the oldest one.

The next oldest one is number two. This is from 1964. I'm sure you'll know this. I actually remember this from my childhood watching this old movie when I was a kid. Oops,  I just played it wrong. Never mind that.

Do you know that? Short and sweet from 1964.

Do you know that? I've never actually seen the movie but I know that song and you might too.
