Both the length, finger-hole size, and the diameter of the flute all contribute to why it's an excellent flute for any new player; its length is 17.6-inches or 44.45 cm.
This flute is tuned to the key of A minor, this flute can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale in the key of C, and it plays beautifully with all of our other flutes in the key of 'A' minor.
This is a six hole flute. We automatically include a leather hole cover with this flute, which can be used on the third hole from the top of the flute, as seen in the product's images. Covering the third hole from the top makes the flute easier to learn to play. The leather hole cover can easily be untied and removed, giving the flute player the option of playing the instrument as either a five hole flute or a six hole flute.
