Connect with flutists from all over the world in FCNY's Virtual Flute Choir!
We recommend using your phone or computer to make the video.
There is a written "ritard" in the music. Do NOT follow this marking! Please continue at quarter note = 66.
Please count rests carefully!
Tuning: Please tune to A=440 hz. Most modern flutes will need to pull the headjoint out to be in tune.
- Stay in the yellow. On most recording devices, you'll see the audio levels moving up to yellow and eventually red. Red could mean things were too loud and will sound distorted; yellow is likely not too soft/loud.
- If you record with something like your phone, you may not have this visual feedback. Record a small amount then listen back on headphones. Being further from your phone may avoid distorted sounds, but increases how much we hear the room. The happy medium may be a view where we see performers from the waist up, but this could vary.
- If possible, record where there aren't extra noises. Take time to listen to the room so that we can just enjoy the sound of flutes, not flutes and something else.
