We hope you enjoy your newly hired instrument. Please take the time to read this document in order to keep the instrument in its best condition.
Caring for your instrument
Please don't attempt to assemble your flute before being shown how to do so by your tutor. Never force parts of your flute together, likewise if two parts of your flute stick together, never force them apart. Take the instrument to your tutor and if necessary contact Essex Music Services.
After Each Use
Wipe the keys with a clean cloth, then swab out the inside of the flute using the cleaning rod and cloth. Be sure to clean all sections of the flute, removing moisture from the instrument after each use will help to prolong the life of the pads. Always store the flute in its case when not being used to prevent risk of damage and prevent tarnishing to the finish.
