This is laminated, so it'll last a long time. It has all of the fingerings that you'll need. Not much else to say. Exactly what it says it is-fingering chart, nothing more or less. Good for the money.

Brenda Murphy's Flute Fingering Chart is a good, basic, accurate fingering guide for the beginning flutist. It's made of durable, laminated paper appropriate for young students. (If you have more than a passing interest in the flute, then a thorough guide to all the fingerings you could ever need is in James Pellerite's classic fingering guide, Modern Guide to Fingerings for the Flute).

Brenda Murphy's chart is simple and easy to read. It has standard fingerings for what is generally considered the full range of the flute and piccolo, and uses both staff notation and octave numberings to show the sounding pitch of the notes - however trill fingerings are not included. Also I would prefer it if she had given the two standard fingerings for B flat, rather than combining them as she does. If you don't already know about them that could be confusing.

The back of the chart contains some information on musical notation and very basic information on flute care. Most students encounter problems with flute care not from what they neglect to do, but rather from what they do in an overly zealous attempt to care for the instrument.

It is a helpful starting guide, though think this chart would be greatly improved if she had incorporated a basic trill-fingering chart on the back, which is also essential to beginning flutists, rather than the material on musical notation and flute care.

I am teaching myself how to play the flute (after a few weeks of lessons many years ago) and I couldn't have done it without this guide. It has big diagrams of each of the notes, showing which keys to press. It folds out into 3 sections so you can lay it next to your music book and check which fingerings you need to play the correct note. I found some of the beginning flute books to be lacking in this department. Either the diagrams of what keys to press are quite small, or they are scattered throughout the books so you'd have to keep searching for them. This is a great learning tool!

Pros: It's plastic, won't rust.

Cons:
- The fingering chart is completely non-intuitive, requires a reading element (as opposed to being purely visual), and requires the student's head crank over 90 degrees in order to align the chart with the flute.
- If you are a new student wanting a fingering chart, don't get this one. The one that you'll find in any beginner's book (or even the one that came with the flute) is far more usable.

This chart would be good for an instructor to post on the wall in class, only because it shows a life-size picture of a flute. And it points to where the fingers go when holding the flute - a good 30 seconds of use per student. At nearly a quarter the cost of a full-on book, it's hardly worth the money.

Just what I was looking for, a great visual, wonderful to have it in plastic for durability sake, perfect size, folds open... folds into thirds. I like that I can limit what octave I'm looking at. I've seen other charts and this one's the best. Crystal clear as to the information and a pretty color too.

My daughter just started playing the flute and this thing is awesome! It reads a bit complicated for a beginner, but I have enough flute/music experience to help her decipher the finger placement and notes she needs right now as opposed to those she doesn't yet. Wonderful!
