...never felt so physically
comfortable playing the flute as with the UpRite.
Playing the UpRite and
then going back to my regular headjoint was like returning
my arms to a vise.
...always had neck, shoulder
and hand problems playing my flute and finally after
seeking a medical solution, the UpRite may prove the
most promising approach...
I have taught many young
students who want to play the flute but find the instrument
too much to handle. By experimenting with the UpRite
some of these same kids now had no trouble...
...the UpRite improved
my technique once I learned that I didnít have to fight
the physical aches I normally contended with.
After playing flute for
almost 70 years, I almost gave up because it had become
physically painful to play. When I tried the UpRite,
the pleasure of flute playing returned and...
The choice of playing vertical
or horizontal is really important ... there are times
that listeners just donít want to contend with
looking at a strange flute...
Every teacher should have
an UpRite to get students started on the flute. Its
the most valuable teaching aid Iíve seen. I wish this
thing didnít cost so much.
I donít know about you
but seeing your fingers when you play is really something
I find of great value.
The UpRite is the only
wind instrument Iíve ever played that you didnít have
to support with your hands. Its like playing my piano.
As a sax and clarinet player
the UpRite fit my hands so much more natural than my
old combo. Having all my instruments play vertically
suits me just fine ... in the dark and crowded orchestra
pit, for quick changes ... the UpRite makes it possible
to go from flute to clarinet in a fraction of the time
it normally takes.
When I learn to relax and
back off a little it seems shamefully easy ... I feel
guilty working so little.
...I can see that the UpRite
would make the flute the ideal instrument for the marching
band. Its easier to hold than a clarinet. Give it five
years and every marching band in the world will want
I got a real kick out of
all those attachments that come with the UpRite. They
go on in a flash and come off just as easy. I like the
idea of not permanently altering my flute body to accommodate
The tone the UpRite produces
is colorful and interesting and in some ways I like
it better than my regular flute...
