Best Answer

You can tune your Flute with a piano by both you and the piano playing an A (tuning note). If its too sharp or flat you then push the mouth piece in or pull it out.

You still can play the flute, just you have to adjust your fingers to play effectively and keep the fingers on the holes.

No but it is the same as the trumpet & piano(Afgncaap8 disagrees, saying that clarinet music isdifferent from flute, and that it is the same as trumpet, but the clarinet has different music than the piano! The piano is a C instrument, whereas the typical trumpet and clarinet tend to be tuned to B-flat. However, usually the flute and the piano are both tuned to C, so their music could be the same.)
