    Find the key you are playing

    On some scales the tonic note (the first note in a scale) is the second hole up on the flute (as opposed to the bottom hole). Because of this the key you are playing in is different than it normally is when playing a Native Flute. Use the chart below or download it from the link above to find the key you are playing. Example: Your flute is in the key of "A". Find the line for the key of "A" on the left and follow it to the right to the underlined letter, it shows "C". So when you play a scale that starts on the second hole up on this flute you are now playing in the key of "C".
