Relaxing your limbs

- Janis asks: My hands, air, and mouth all relax or tense up together even when they don't have to. How can I get them to be more independent of one another? Thanks!

The 45 Day Flute Transformation is part of The Flute Academy and there is a whole module on how to identify (and remove) tension from your body when you play.

Practising flute with metronome

- Ronee asks: What is the best way to play with metronome. I find it hard to use and find that I often block it out. Especially when playing a new song. It makes me nervous to use this and I find that I make more mistakes by playing wrong notes.

Flute lessons for kids

- Jenny asks: My daughter is 8 and has been playing the flute for about a year with most of her lessons on zoom calls. She has had a problem with her cheeks until she watched your videos. Do you have anything appropriate for her?
