  • Slide 11 - Flute Construction The flute is about 27in long and is comprised of 3 separate parts. The first part is the head joint. Parts of the head joint consist of the embouchure hole. Secondly, there is the mid-section which is where all the keys and holes are kept. Lastly, there is the foot joint which lengthens the range to either C or sometimes B.
  • Slide 12 - Construction cont… The piccolo is much smaller (12.5 in long) and has only two pieces. They are both shaped like a cylinder and the head joint is shaped like a parabolic curve. How it’s made!
  • Slide 13 - Sound Production Air stream is directed across the hole of the mouth piece Generator = creates rapid vibration at the head of the tube 2. Deflection of the air against the hole’s edge moves the air through the column Resonator = air vibrating within the rest of the tube
  • Slide 14 - Sound Production Vibrating section of the tube will be between the mouth hole and the first open hole The shorter the section, the faster the vibration, the higher the pitch Change the length of the vibrating section by pressing down keys
