Sorry to barge in, it will become clear I am not a woodwind player; perhaps I should post this in Teachers.
What is the flute fingering for C# in the space an octave (+ a semitone) above middle C? I had a boy playing Schubert's Marche Militaire in preparation for a concert and I was playing the piano. C# was dreadfully out of tune, with no keys pressed. I rang my wife, who does play the flute, and she said to use the C# key with the little finger of the RH but another opinion I have had suggests this would be hard at Grade 2.
What do you all tell your pupils?
I was told "The cheaper the flute the more out of tune C# is".
If my woowind peri reads this it will cost me several bottles of wine and months of apologies; she is a super teacher and a great colleague but I think we need help with this one. (phew!)
