The Second Octave

Learning to play the second octave on the flute can be tricky. You have to adjust your air stream to help produce higher notes.

A lot of beginners struggle with this, so it’s totally normal! In this Flexible Flute Lesson, you’ll learn how to make the jump between the first and second octaves so that you can start to play more music.

You’ll receive:

  • Access to a video lesson that you can watch as much as you like
  • A PDF download of exercises just for this lesson
  • The option to request feedback of your playing

Your Teacher

Hi there! It’s Hannah, and I started learning the flute without a private teacher to guide me.

I had to figure things out for myself, including making that leap into the second octave. (Which as a saxophonist-turned-flutist, not having an octave key came as quite a shock!)

This lesson is meant to help you overcome an issue that causes many players to give up.

Who is this lesson for?

This lesson is for beginner flute players who need a little help learning to play in the second octave. It assumes you know the fingerings for the notes B, A, and G and can make a sound of some sort.
