Open Hole Flute Tips

Open hole flutes are the step up that every student player is looking forward to, but the change in playing styles can cause a few surprises if you aren’t ready. Here are some tips to help make this transition smooth, fun and musical.  Our Yamaha Allegro flutes are amazing, and every band director raves about their quality and sound. We also have in-store lessons all through the year.

(1) Hold the flute in the proper position, out to your right, parallel to the floor, with elbows away from your body. Sit up straight.

(2) Cradle flute loosely in your hands with fingers resting gently on the keys

(3) As you press keys to form the notes, make sure your fingers completely cover the holes, but don’t pinch too tightly. This is the key to getting the proper tone. Begin by practicing notes that use the least fingers, such as B. Work your way down to D adding fingers as you get a good tone on each note.

(4) As an alternative, you can purchase plugs that slip into the holes in the keys (we have these in our store). These plugs are made from plastic and will close the holes so the instrument plays like a regular flute. They are helpful when learning to play an open-hole flute.

(5) Practice playing with plugs in. Remove one plug at a time, and practice this way until you can comfortably produce the note corresponding with the removed plug. Remove the next plug and practice until comfortable. Proceed until all plugs are removed.

Yamaha Acoustic Pianos are Here!

Willis Music in Louisville is well known for our great selection of guitars, band instruments, drums, amplifiers and PA equipment, but after hearing your requests we’ve added something new to our offerings: Yamaha acoustic pianos!

There were several options to consider when we decided to bring acoustic pianos in, but the one closest to our mind was satisfying the needs in the very best way possible. The good news is that since Yamaha was hands down the most asked for brand, we chose to add the U1 and U3 uprights to our store. The better news is that we’re bringing in used pianos that are so beautifully refinished you’d think they were brand new, except for the price!

Please come in & give your fingers and ears a treat- you’ll be very glad you did!

Willis Music not only has the coolest, most current musical equipment in Louisville, we also have great used gear at killer prices. But maybe the price could be even more killer, huh?
