hey mr. stillwell I just wanted to write you a quick note saying that i got my flute two days ago, and it is so beautiful, i love the simple design and on top of the beauty it sounds so good. I can't get over how good it sounds, and its not hard to play at all, once i learned the scales, which took 10 minutes or so, and now i can't keep my hands off of it, i can now just pick it up and play whatever pops into my mind and i love trying new and different techniques. Just thank you so so much. I couldn't have asked for anything better.
