Playing in a tunnel

Went for a walk with my daughter and  I took my new flute out with me. There is a tunnel under the motorway and I wanted to play it there. The acoustic is amazing. I made a video but it was audio only as I just put my phone on the ground. So I added a photo using InShot.

New Instrument Day...

Ordered myself a native American style flute, and it arrived today. Its made of Douglas Fir and has a warm, soft, quiet tone compared to recorder. I just need a good play with it to get to know it.

Purchased from http://www.flutes-of-the-forest.co.uk for £68 postage free.

Playing recorder as a native American style flute

My attempt to play my recorder as a native American style flute. I plugged the 3rd hole, thumb hole and bottom hole, leaving 5 holes and giving a pentatonic scale.

Gavotte (piano)

Finally nailed it. I've been away from the piano for a while but I was determined to get this piece right!

Little piece on the classical

Paraphrase on the octave.
I'm trying not to squeak, and I really need to relax that pinky.

Took a few attempts to get it right!
