For the record, I ALWAYS forget to pose for the thumbnail, and by the time I'm working on the thumbnail, it's usually the next day, and the clothes I was wearing are in the laundry basket, and I can't recreate the same lighting and makeup! I'm working on remembering to pose for thumbnails because the end result always looks so much more polished.
While the piccolo review needed to be postponed until next month, I was super excited to show you guys a flute that allows you to choose a headjoint! This video was specifically geared toward late intermediate students who are making their way into the advanced flute world. By this time, you're probably feeling like your current flute isn't exactly working with you anymore to help you produce your ideal sound. The world of headjoints is vast and endless, but I think Altus did a great job of streamlining their Britannia headjoints into 3 cuts that will work with pretty much any flutist. It's a great introduction into choosing a headjoint, and it will give a great idea of what kind of flute player you are, in case you want to upgrade to an even higher end headjoint in the future. By then, you won't be starting from scratch anymore, and I love that Altus provided such a great way for you guys to start exploring your personal way of producing sound on the flute.
Have fun playing around with these headjoints! :D
