Most Flutes (including piccolo, Concert flute, bass, and contra-bass flute) are C instruments. Other flute types and their pitches are: Treble, Alto,and Contra-Alto flutes:G, and Soprano flute(rare): E-flat. Most flutes besides Concert flute, and Piccolo are only used in flute choirs.

A woodwind instrument is an instrument in which you need to blow air into whatever sort of mouthpeice needed for that instrument. For example, in order to play a flute, you must blow into the head of the flute and a noise comes out thanks to the air viberating threw the instrument. Other woodwinds include the piccolo,clarinets, saxophones, oboes, ect...

Very. It is very popular for both marching and concert bands, as well as many orchestras. I happen to play the flute and love it very much. However, I will say that learning how to first play the flute can be tough, as the mouth positioning is unlike any other instrument (except piccolo). But the flute is a great instrument and if you want to play an instrument that can stand alone or be played in a group, it is a beautiful instrument to learn. Best of luck!

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.

"Flauto 2 muta in flauta piccolo" I believe means "Flute 2 change to piccolo", in other words, at this point in the score the second flute changes to piccolo. -BLS

No, it's the other way around. I believe the piccolo can go a full octave higher than the regular concert flute.

A piccolo is a half sized flute that plays an octave higher then it's full sized cousin. A clarinet is a reed instrument that, while also from the woodwind family, plays at a lower range then the flute and is held vertically rather then horizontally. There are innumerable other differences, but these are the basics.

It depends how you mean:If you mean when the instrument is playing a concert pitch A then some sound the same as other and would be in groups:Piccolo,Flute, clarinet and oboeBassoonIf you mean their pitch range for their highest note:Piccolo,Flute,Oboe,Clarinet,BassoonPitch for their lowest note:Piccolo,Flute,Oboe,Clarinet,Bassoon(this is only using the most simple of woodwind instruments)

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!

The flute is somewhat unique in that it is a woodwind without a reed. The closest similar instrument is the piccolo, which is played the same as the flute but is smaller and pitched one octave higher. Flutes are classified as woodwinds; other woodwinds include the clarinet, saxophone, oboe and bassoon.

The flute is different because it is an instrument where you blow across not into it The flute is different because it is an instrument where you blow across not into it

The flute is one of the key members of the orchestra although their numbers are usually restricted. There are normally only two/three (with one doubling as a piccolo player) in an orchestra compared to many violins and other stringed instruments.

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.

~I know a lot about both instruments because I have been fortunate enough to play both of them. I have played flute for 4 1/2 years and the piccolo for 6 months. Hope these help with your question:Similarities:~They both have the same fingerings even though one is considerably smaller than the other.~They have the same style head joint.Differences:~The flute is three pieces and the piccolo is only 2.~The piccolo is way higher pitched than the flute.~I can not even stick my pinky into the end of a piccolo and I have very small fingers.~You have to have more air support on the piccolo than you have to on the flute. You have to blow harder to get a sound out of a piccolo.Hope this helped you out!! :)

Champagne can be served in a type of glass called a flute. Other than that, a flute is a musical instrument.

The flute can be played most anywhere. Both as a solo instrument and as an ensemble instrument like in an orchestra or other musical group.

The flute is a musical instrument in the wood wind family. Unlike other wood wind instruments, the flute is a reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air against an edge of the mouth piece.

The flute is actually a woodwind instrument despite it being made of silver/ other metals. To read more about it just read the external link.

Oboe, flute , saxophone and Trumpet

A piccolo is just a half-sized flute: that is, a flute that is twice as small as a regular flute. This causes the pitches of the piccolo to be an octave higher when playing the same notes/fingerings as a normal flute. Other than this, there are some additional technical differences. Flutes are mostly made of sterling or pure silver, while many piccolo players in symphony orchestras prefer wood for its mellow, darker sound. Piccolos also do not have a foot joint, leaving it with only one right pinky button, and tend to have head joints that lock into the body of the piccolo rather than slide into it as a flute head joint would. Some piccolos also do not have lip plates.

No. There are many other types of instruments and the flute might be difficult to learn but easy to master. The only way to learn an instrument is to play it every day.

A flute was originally called an aerophone. The flute as an instrument dates back almost 35,000 years to ancient Germany and other parts of Europe.

The violin is a non-transposing instrument, which means when asked to play, for example, a "C", the violin plays its "C" and the pitch is the same as a "C" on the piano. Other non-transposing instruments include the cello, double bass, piccolo, flute, oboe, bassoon, trombone, tuba, vibraphone, and marimba.
