Tip 4 - Consider the Way the Music is Layed Out Every beginner flute player loathes opening up a new piece of music and seeing lines and lines of music that is printed so small that you nearly need a magnification device to read it! These kinds of publications can put a real stress on your vision and occupy valuable practice time with you trying to decode what all those tiny squiggles might indicate. Try to look for music that is big enough so that it doesn't cause strain on your eyes to read it. Try holding the music out in front of you about the same length it will be when it’s on your music stand. You're ready to get your music if you can read the notes very easily. Don't stress if you find that your music is too small. You can still make it work for you quite easily, however it'll take some innovative solutions! Why don't you write out your own music if you don't like what is offered to you?! Manuscript and a pencil is all you will require. Writing out beginner flute music which is too little to read will allow you to produce a piece for yourself that you otherwise wouldn't have been able to play.

Tip 2 - Practice Makes Perfect Just because you happen to be learning beginner flute music is not going to signify you won’t have to practice! However, when getting started, you don't need to spend too much time practicing. 20 min daily is perfectly okay. However, practicing is not only about punching the clock. Focusing on how you practice is really much more important than counting down the minutes. Progressing well really depends on you being careful whenever you practice. There are two aspects to what I call "conscientious practicing".You will want to be aware of what you want to work on the moment you start practicing. Know exactly what you need to tackle within your playing. Enter into your practice period with the intention of dealing with it and knowing how to do it. Being focused on what you are attempting to accomplish in your practice is also part of practicing diligently. It’s insufficient to just mindlessly play through your music. If you split up the music into modest portions and work on those separately, you will discover you're on your way to improving the full piece. Tip 1 - Don't Get Bogged Down in the Details It may sound contradictory, since I have just explained to focus a lot of your practice time around the finer details of your beginner flute music, however it’s essential to hit a good sense of balance between dedication and pleasure. It does take some work to get good at the flute, but don't forget the main reason you most likely wish to play in the first place... The reason is that it's fun and it's social. If you are stressed by everything, then take a step back and chill out for a moment. While we're continually striving to be a superior flute player, we can’t let that desire stress us out or overtake us - a skipped note or a lousy rhythm in a performance isn't the end of the world. Even pros make a mistake from time to time. That is in fact the coolest aspect of beginner flute music. It poses fresh and challenging situations for the beginner flutist yet still be familiar and fun enough to aid us remember exactly what the true reasons for all music making are.
