My daughter is a first year band student. She chose to play the flute. I really have no idea how to help her with it, other than to teach her how to practice in general. (which seem what she needs more than anything) Out of my own curiosity more than anything I had her play several notes and tried to see if they would register on my hand held guitar tuner (that I use to tune my bass) I found that she could play two notes that seemed to register in the tuner, but in both cases she was significantly sharp - so I suspect that all of her notes are sharp. Does this have something to do with her ambature or technique, and if so what might she need to do to adjust? If not that, then is there a way to tune a flute so that all of the notes will come out flatter (on pitch) or is this simply a case of 'you can't tune a flute with a guitar tuner'? I really don't know anything about flutes. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I hope this is okay in misc as music related - if not please ship it off to OT. Thanks all.
