The flute is a fascinating instrument, belonging to one of the oldest instrument families. It is thought to have arisen in the Stone Age, and to spread to all cultures. The transverse flute appears in orchestras in the second half of the 17th century and is usually given prominence as a soloist.
Composers like Claude Debussy dedicated pieces to him like “Syrinx”. In the 20th century, the transverse flute found space in musical genres as distinct as jazz, by the hand of Herbie Mann, or in progressive rock, as in the case of Jethro Tull.
Recommended for students from 8 years of age, JP011 has a very long period of expected use for such an accessible instrument, due to its sound quality and construction resistance.
