Learning about Air Flow with a Pnuemo Pro!

My students need Pneumo Pros, which is a tool for flute players to learn how to direct their air into the flute.

My Students

My students are highly motivated, highly diverse, and highly dedicated to band. They come from a Title 1 school and consistently achieve honors above and beyond outside expectations.

My students use band for many purposes--the joy of learning music, a refuge from the stress of middle school drama, a subject in which to excel and a hobby that might earn them scholarships that can make a dream of college come true.

My goal is to make band into whatever positive thing or place they need it to be.

My Project

One of the (many) challenges to playing flute is directing air into the mouthpiece correctly. A student can't just blow into a flute and get all of the notes in a flute's range with a perfect sound. The air needs to be controlled and directed into different areas of the mouthpiece. If you are having a hard time imagining this, think about how a beginner or intermediate flute player in middle school must feel!

Technology for band isn't just computers and iPads--the Pneumo Pro is a new piece of technology that allows students to see how their airspeed travels in a flute mouthpiece.

This tool will help students fine tune their playing and help them play flute. The Pneumo Pro is also fun! It's fun to use this tool and see the air direction change. Not only will this tool help my students become better flautists, but it'll also motivate them and let us all have fun while learning.

I have asked for a class set of Pnuemo Pros (25 in total) and the Great Beginnings DVD, which is another visual tool to help students learn flute successfully.
