The Sound of Music

For the weekly photo challenge: Delicate

This year there are two flutists in my family (as well as two teenagers) and sometimes our schedule doesn’t afford time for separate practice. In order for Trinidad and Rane to practice separate pieces of music simultaneously, each girl must use a gentle breath and delicate fingering.

Many thanks to Gilliam Music and Norman Public Schools for their assistance in providing flutes for these girls to play 🙂

  2. Flutists do have a delicate touch. I don’t play, but I had a 4th grade student who would come and visite me when she was in 5th grade and try to teach me . I couldn’t master the difficult skill of blowing into the instrument to make that delicately beautiful sound. Love your post. Thanks for visiting my site. Glad to have you. Marsha 🙂
