Instruments

Instrumental performance is exceptionally complex. Each instrument has its own characteristics and these, to some extent, define how a piece will be played. For example, a fanfare will generally be led by horns and will make use of the incredible power and loud dynamics of these instruments. A lute piece, on the other hand, will generally be soft and intimate and will take advantage of the subtleties of the instrument in performance.

When you’re learning to perform on an instrument, you’ll have to accommodate the phrasing of the piece with your playing style. You would not, for example, want to take a deep breath in the middle of a long an intricate passage and, thereby, break up the feel of the passage entirely. Conversely, you wouldn’t want to rush through a phrase that’s intended as the defining characteristic of a piece.

The leitmotif, which is sometimes called the hook in modern parlance, is the part of a piece of music that people usually remember. Because it is such a good example, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony is a good piece to listen to. The distinctive opening phrase is developed throughout the piece, but it is phrased in a way that always makes it coherent. Phrasing will be a huge part of your success as an instrumental performer.

Starting out, try to play musical pieces as faithfully as possible to the sheet music. If you’re a pianist or a guitarist, you have the advantage of not being expected to read off of sheet music during performance. This allows you to internalize the music and to interpret it from the inside out, rather than having reading the sheet music itself take up any of your energy. Try to memorize any piece of music you learn, even if you’ll have the sheet music in front of you during performance.

The Broad View

You could study Western music for the rest of your life and only get a small view of the actual breadth of the musical landscape. World music uses different conventions, different scales, different textures and different rhythms. The music of any given culture is an important reflection of its artistic values and its overriding aesthetic sensibilities. From the most exotic and rhythmic tones of Native American singers to the incredible melodic and rhythmic constructions of North Indian classical music, the world is full of riches to explore and to learn from.

Pavane for Flute Orchestra

PavaneThe first arrangement of this piece for full flute orchestra!  This arrangement is scored for 4 C Flutes, 2 Alto Flutes, Bass Flute and Contrabass.

This charming and popular piece was written in 1887. Obtaining its rhythm from the slow processional Spanish court dance of the same name, the Pavane ebbs and flows from a series of harmonic and melodic climaxes, conjuring a cool, somewhat haunting, Belle Epoque(French for “Beautiful Era”) elegance. The piece is scored for a small orchestra and optional chorus.

A typical performance lasts around seven minutes.

Guo Flutes are now available!

Guo FlutesFlute World is now stocking Guo Flutes and Piccolos!  Try out a Grenaditte or New Voice Flute in C, or a Grenaditte or New Voice Piccolo today!

Grenaditte has similar acoustic properties to bamboo-wood, but without the disadvantages of tonal fluctuations, the risk of cracking and the high costs associated with wood instruments.

New Voice instruments are made from a composite material which is super light-weight, and is actually lighter than the standard Grenaditte flute. The sound is brighter and much like that of a regular metal flute.
