Yep, I also filmed this one on the same day as the Patreon introduction and "My students think they're bad, but they're not." I don't think I've filmed that many videos in one day before, but it was absolutely necessary since I was flying out for vacation for an entire week! There's a lot that I have to prepare so that you guys still get your weekly content. It's hard work, but it's worth it every time I see your comments rolling in. :)
I just happened to have a couple students whose flutes were in need of repair, and each time, I walked them through some tips to help them have a smooth experience when bringing their flutes in for repair. I realized after a few times of teaching these tips that it would make for a great video. In fact, the last student I walked through these tips told me that I should make a video about it! I love it. Even my students are looking out for the rest of you guys. ;)
I've made many mistakes over the years, causing some awkward conversations between repair technicians and myself. I realized after way too long that the best way to approach bringing your flute in for repair is to completely accept what happened, contact your repair person calmly, and be 100% open and honest with them about how the accident happened. Repair people are incredibly understanding and won't judge you! They're repair people because they love to help restore instruments to their proper form.
I hope this video helped you guys. Thanks for watching! ^_^
