Students who can persevere, who are patient, have a good work ethic, and who can quickly make a sound at the audition and demonstrate good finger coordination are great candidates for the flute. This is an instrument that is extremely competitive in honor bands and chair placements as the student progresses, so students who enjoy that type of
challenge will love this instrument.

Due to popularity of the instrument, we limit the number of flute players to balance the overall instrumentation of the band program. Students will need to show clear potential to be selected. This is a challenging instrument to begin to learn and requires a great deal of patience and an extremely dedicated student.
