Ok, so I'm a 14 year old boy at a school in North Yorkshire. As well as guitar and keyboard, I also play the flute. But before I stopped getting time wasting lessons at school other kids used to mock me. I was 13 at the time. But is this wrong? is there anything bad about playin the flute? be honest, please.

No there just immature, keep it up. Since you're in high school you'll be getting band pussy in no time.

Ha ha, yes if you're a guy.

Just kidding man, some of the best flute players in the world are men.
They're just being normal 13 year olds. We made fun of a boy who played flute at my school.
He turned out to be a pretty cool kid.
They'll keep at it no matter what, just don't let it get to you.
Hell, I played the oboe... that's not too far away from a flute.

In a few years, no one will care.

IMO, nothing at all; the flute can be awesome. tony iommi played one on the paranoid album, there are recorders (close enough) at the start of stairway to heaven, and then there's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59ZX5qdIEB0.

the flute is a great instrument. i'm learning clarinet on the side for the jazz side of it. you're doing the right thing by learning lots of instruments.

No....

Idiot kids.

"Guitar is the only c00l insturment!"


The more insturments you know how to play the better.They are your tools for making music.

Thats as dumb as making fun of a handyman for using anything other than a screwdriver.

You should keep that up. All the hottest girls in my school band do flute and clarinet. It almost makes me wish I had done one of those instead of percussion.... Not to mention I would probably be better at reading music too. Damn me and my lack of foresight.

playing a different instrument is good it really pisses me off when everyone thinks that guitar is the only good instrument in the world. i mean i play guitar but if i could go back in ime i would gladly start playing something else knowing how many people would begin guitar a year or so.

There is not one instrument that I would turn down the chance to learn... Anyone who makes fun of you for playing one is jealous... Or just ignorant. Either way, they lose, you win.

I know how you feel, man... except my instrument was the trumpet. I gave up because of all the bullying I got about it. I regret that now so, so much. You stick with it, they're being immature little arse wipes with nothing better to do than try and put down someone with a talent.

If they keep ripping it out of you, rape them in the ear with your flute.

jethro tull had a flute. so, **** those kids
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

Flute?! Zomg what are you thinking?

Nah, it's cool. It's a cool instrument to learn... I tried it before but I nearly died trying (and failed music class) but... If you're good at it, stick with it, and even if you're not, if you like it stick with it anyway.

Beatboxing Flute Guy= w00tage (Or something like that)

Seriously, the flute is an amazing instrument, it was what got me into music in the first place. When I've been on here a few months I could make an "introduced to guitar via woodwind" clan... Muchos kudos.

Dude, just look at Jethro Tull. Ian anderson is a great flute player and it fits with their music. they shouldn't be laughing
#33
The people who laugh at you are just pathetic and immature...stick at it and who knows you may become famous and kiss all their asses if you enjoy playing it then stick at it who cares what other people think its your life.

Mostly girls play the flute at my school. I take jabs at playing flute sometimes. But they're only jokes. I really wish I could play the flute.

AQUALUNG FTW.

hell no dude flute is great....i started at recorder.....then went onto clarinet about 7/8 years ago......euphonium about 5 years ago (and trombone but i gave that up cos the lessons were crap and so was the state of the instrument...and i was told i could get guitar if i stopped trombone hehe).....i only started guitar about 7/8 months ago

stick with it....they are probably jelous cos they have no musical talent what so ever

there's nothing wrong with playing the flute, but there is something wrong when you're yelling "UREH UREH UREH" all over Youtube....

^hahahaha (to Doolittle)

Learning unconventional instruments is cool, it definitely makes you more desirable as a musician. Guitarists are a dime a dozen, flautists no...

My best friend used to play flute for a school band... no one made fun of him.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Dude! Forget those shitheads. Trust me, You'll be laughing @ them in a few years. The kind of a kids of do that usually end up nowhere! They only care about the current, not the future. They are the lowest form of modern humans!

Keep playing man. The flute can sound absolutly beautiful. It can make chicks drop their pants really quick to. ( in the right setting )

Yeah, I hate that shit too. I went through it in highschool as well. Funny thing is, that almost everyone of those jock/party hard type kids arent in college and or failed out of college because life is a joke and a party to them. Now I'm sure they work @ burger king to make enough money to only sit in their house and get drunk by themselves.
