Every scale can be played on bother the flute and the piccolo. On the flute you can play the A, A flat, B, B flat, D, G, F sharp, and F two octaves. For the C and the D flat there are three that can be played without a Low B key. If you have a low B key, you can play the B scale three octaves. On the piccolo it is the same (minus there is no such thing as a low B key for a piccolo) and the C and high d flat thrid octaves take a lot of effort and practice to get out.

over all the piccolo is one octave higher then the flute. Which means that the piccolo is higher but sometimes in band pieces the piccolo part is one octave down then the flute part so the piccolo will be playing in the same octave but most of the time the piccolo part will be one octave up from the flute for as example if a person plays a low b flat on the flute and an other person played the low b flat on the piccolo there will be an octave difference I hope this makes sense to you.

i grade 8 at flute, piccolo and bass flute... and i can beatbox on ALL of them :)

Piccolo flute, C flute (^^), alto flute, bass flute, and contra-bass flute!

The piccolo plays higher than the flute. All orchestra's have piccolo's and the piccolo can only go so high (same as the flute) so it is not a matter of which orchestra plays the highest because all of them can play at the same pitch range (this also applies for the flute)

The piccolo looks like all the other instruments in the flute familily, including the c flute, as well as the alto flute, bass flute, contra bass flute, etc.

A piccolo is a smaller version of the flute, when all notes played sound an octave above the notes played on the flute. For example, if you were to play the third-line B-flat on the flute and on piccolo, it would sound an ovtave higher on the piccolo than on the flute, even though they are the same note. Most (if not all) of the fingering for notes is the same on both instruments, and it is incredibly easy to switch between the two--for example, I started playing flute in 5th grade, and started playing piccolo in the 7th grade, and would bring both to concerts and practices. Depending on the song and what our conductor wanted, I would either play flute or piccolo. I have found that songs for what our school called "Pep Band" or "marching band" usually called for me to play piccolo, while more concert type peices called for flute.

Piccolo, flute, oboe, cor de anglis, clarinet (all), bassoon (all), and the saxophone, the latter of which is not commonly used in an orchestra.OboeBassoonClarinets (all)Saxaphone (all)flute, piccolo, English horns are also members of the woodwind family.Flute, Clarinet, Piccolo, Oboe, Saxophone, Bassoon, Contrabassoon.

Well, a piccolo is similar to the flute because is the same but piccolo is a bit smaller and also recorder and all the other woodwind (and metal wind) instruments are related to the flute because it is in the same family!

No. A piccolo is a woodwind instrument, but it is basically a tiny flute, so it has no reed at all, just a hole that you blow over the way you would play a flute.

generally, the flute is not used in jazz bands but if they were, they would be normal for regular.

Those who would like to learn how to play the piccolo are advised to buy the beginners level book by Ernesto Kohler: Schule Fur Piccolo Flote, published by Zimmmermann. For those who would like to learn how to play the flute ABRSM Scales and Arpeggios For Flute 1-8, published by ABRSM publishing is a useful book. The book covers all grades starting from beginners all the way to advanced .

A piccolo is the highest-pitched member of the flute family. Just like the flute, the picColo does not use a cane Reed at all. The flute-type instruments have a hole on the side of the instrument, across which the player blows. The stream of air is directed by the lips towards the far side of the hole, where the stream of air excites the air in the bore. The air vibrates at a pitch controlled by air speed, fingerling, and other things which are controlled by the player. The piccolo is played in this fashion, although, being shorter, without the range of the larger flutes.

All the instruments in the woodwind section, like the flute, oboe, and clarinet.

Flute, piccolo, oboe, all clarinets, all saxophones, trumpet, French horn, xylophone

I believe it's a piccolo. Like a flute, but very, very small. :)

All the flutes (Alto, piccolo, flute ect.) are closely related to each other. Also the saxophones.

Flute bassoon oboe clarinet alto saxophone piccolo tenor saxophone there are a lot more than 7

Violin, piccolo, flute, oboe, English horn, all clarinets, trumpet, horn (usually), xylophone, glockenspiel.

It sounds like a bird. It is higher pitched than all instruments, except the Piccolo, which is a smaller Flute. It's like a higher pitched clarinet. Very pretty.The larger the instument,the higer the pitch.

i think 35,000,000 thats how many played the flute from all around the world

the instrument with the highest sound is the piccolo. The piccolo is basically a miniature flute, and it has all the same fingerings (what you do with your fingers to make the notes), except you have to make a tighter embrasure (how you purse your lips), and it sounds an octave (eight notes) higher.

The main woodwind instruments are (high to low): Piccolo, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Bassoon, Contra-Bassoon. There are others however, such as all the saxophones and the recorder.

There certainly is. A fife is a small, high-pitched, transverse flute that is similar to the piccolo, but louder and shriller due to its narrower bore. I just wanted to make some additional clarification. When people say "flute" they usually mean the Western concert flute, also called the C flute (referring to its range, though there are other flutes with a similar range). Technically a flute is any woodwind instrument which uses a split air stream to produce sound vibrations, so these are all flutes. The answer above is correct, though, as to the difference between a classic C flute and a fife. That is, they are both transverse and use an embouchure hole to create sound, but a fife is higher pitched than a C flute, and louder and more shrill than a piccolo. Also a fife has holes to cover with your fingers rather than keys that uncover holes like a piccolo or a C flute, and typically has a different fingering chart with fewer holes (though fingering charts can vary).
