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.
- 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.
