I have been playing flute since I was 9 years old. I gained grade 7 in 1991 at the age of 15. I have experience of playing flute in orchestras and wind bands.
I now play the flute to a very good standard. I can easily improvise on my flute, sight read music, play by ear, learn a variety of complex pieces. I can play the full range of notes on the flute. I can also play the piccolo.
I have played flute at acoustic pub nights and gigs and performed on the street in the UK.
