I am doing a choir item and I want a student to play her flute with the choir - she's about G4. However, when she plays an A, it sounds like a G!!! And I can't get it up to A (pulling the top bit in/out a bit - you can tell I know nothing about flutes!!!). Please advise me what to do?
(disclaimer: I don't play the flute)
Pushing in may raise the pitch a little, but if it's that far out it's probably either something wrong with the instrument, or more likely the way the student is blowing it. Can you have a word with her teacher?
