I love the sound and the instrument of the flute. I wish I played the flute in 6th grade but I switched to clarinet because it reminds me of the favored reeds. I almost played flute for christmas but I switched to bell because right now, I have dental braces. I found out that I could still play flute with my braces as long as I curl my lips. I picked up a flute one time and I could not get it to make sound. I curled them and it didn't work. Flute is my favorite thing to hear. I'm giving you 5 stars.
