Okay I loved that guy. Me and my partner knew we wouldn't do well because we hadn't been competing in it for a while (opted out at state and there wasn't anybody you judge region) so we learned how to schmooze XD anyways so he walked in and we jumped up and were like "HEY!" and he seriously like did the same thing and started laughing. The other two judges didn't really like our friendliness though...yeah, the judge was asking us the questions and we were just standing there with this completely clueless look on our faces thinking, what in the world is this guy talking about, so we guessed the answers pretty randomly, and yeah.....
Really? one lady made us bump elbows cause she didnt like shaking handsOh, you see, my judges were ALL super friendly. I sorta dragged out my happy and bubbly personality and went for it
Any guesses for next year's required piece?
Many of them were the same. I think the national event supervisor changed though. Either way, I must say that it was a great experience both volunteering and competing in the past 3 years.The nationals judges in 2012 were also really nice. I'm not sure if they were the same as this year or not, but they gave us a lot of compliments and eased the pressure and nerves quite a bit.
Half-holes should work fine. If it doesn't give you the perfect pitch that you want, you can also roll the flute in or out, depending on whether you want to go a half step up or down. Rolling in corresponds to flatter, and rolling out corresponds to sharper. Try experimenting with that first.I'm trying to plan for next year, and I can't find any chromatic PVC or bamboo flute plans online.
All of the plans are for diatonic flutes. Is there any way that I can make a diatonic flute play a flat or sharp using half-holes?
Is there any other way to make a diatonic flute?
