Try looking in your book or on the web for some easy notes to play. You might be wondering which notes are easy and which notes are hard. Some of the easy notes are B, A, or G. If you turn your flute around you will see that there are two keys. One looks like a paddle and one looks like a golf club. You want to put your thumb on the golf club. Put the finger next to thumb on the second circular key. Put your pinkie on a key that looks like a little paddle. It should be on the little piece at the end. If you put your fingers in the right spot, then you made the note B.
To make the note A, all you have to do skip a key after the second circular key. So you should have one finger on the second circular key and one on the fourth circular key. Once you have done that, you made the note A.
To make G, all you have to do is put your finger on the fifth circular key. You have made the note G. Now you know 3 notes!!!!! In the future, you will learn some more harder notes, but for now you can stick to these three notes.
