If you wonder where to buy a good flute, our teacher recommends Sax & Woodwind. A basic Yamaha or Pearl flute will work perfectly, don’t be tempted to buy an advanced flute too early. Examples are the Yamaha 200 series or the Pearl 500 series. Please make sure your flute is made out of nickel or brass before you buy it. A a silver plated flute is not ideal.
