A flute is an instument made of siver and produces a tone that is the highest in a band(tonewise that is, although if you don't breathe properly, you get light-headed and start acting funny).

A flutes range varies on the experience of the person playing it.

A flute is concert pitch, which means you don't have to transpose
What a lovely flute you have!

The best instrument in the world. People like to make fun of it for the whole American pie thing and how high it is, but they're really just in awe of its supreme glory! You know that saying, about jealous people? Yeah.

Anyway flutes are generally made out of metal (silver, nickel, gold, platinum, alloys, etc) although Baroque flutes are often made out of wood. Flutes can play lower than most people expect.

Did I mention it's prettyful?
One day, flutes will take over the world. Until then I'll just sit here and cry.

One of the best instruments to ever be played. The people that hate it either listened to some half-assed idiot's attempt at music or are jealous because they know they'll never be cool enough to play it. Can be played solo, in a band or orchestra, small ensemble, or even a rock band such as Jethro Tull. It is a dificult instument that requires many hours of practice but it's all worth it cause when you're good, you're damn good.

Females AND males can play it. And yes, straight males. Some of the best floutists are STRAIGHT males.

So stop hatin on us, 'cause you're just jealous. At least we're not obnoxious like damn trumpeteers.
Yeah, I play the flute. 'Cause I'm awesome unlike you.
