Has a lovely high, sweet sound. Students should be sized by their teacher to ensure they purchase or hire the correct size flute.
Students must have completed 2 years of basic instrument (We recommend taking the Nuvo Toot mini flute class in year 2) or be 9yrs old before enrolling in flute lessons.
Optional Thumbport: we highly recommend that students use a Thumbport on their flute. Most students find it very awkward to position the right thumb correctly (which results in their fingering technique developing ineffectively). The Thumbport eliminates this problem easily by supporting the flute so that the fingers do not have to. One Thumbport will last for many years and is a worthwhile investment.
Thumbports are available from Vanguard Orchestral online or check with the school office if they have stock available for you to purchase.
