    AT the bottom of each column of the chart you see a representation of a flute

   and its six tone holes. This is the fingering chart for your flute. Number 2 is

   1/4 hole and is very hard to play that note for most people so i would not use

   this if later you want to try, feel free to . The bottom hole is the lowest hole on your flute .

  The solid black circles indicates a hole closed a 1/4 or 1/2 blacked out hole indicates a

  1/4 or 1/2 of the hole is open. A circle with a white center indicates an open hole .

  Below the flutes there are numbers for these notes. Twelve notes make a complete chromatic scale.

  In the number and colored spaces 1,4,6,8,11,and 13 you see the position of the basic scale.

  If this is your first flute these notes are what i would recommend you practice first.

  In the number spaces 1,3,5,6,8,10,and 12 you can see the position of the notes that make up the major scale.

  For those of you with no previous musical experience this might look confusing  but you

  do not need to know any of this to play your flute . The hardest part I thank you will find

 playing your flute will be covering the note holes. With a little a little practice you will be playing

 in know time have fun with your flute and play from your heart.
