If it's anything like saxophone (which I'm sure it is) you just gotta add some controlled pulses in your air flow. Kinda like 'who who who'...

Not a good idea. You wouldn't learn how to fly a plane or operate on someone via online course. Studies say that playing a musical instrument involves more brain cells than flying a plane or performing surgery.

I guess there are instruments, where the online approach is more difficult. For sure the double reed instruments fall into this category, where every so often my teacher says: 'Let my try that reed', and after short diagnosis resorts to the tools. In the initial phase I would strongly advise against it - I tried learning bassoon on myself (i.e. even ...

Yes, you can learm any instrument by learning THAT instrument. You may get social pressure to learn C flute first/as well. But that's another matter. A tuba takes more air than a trumpet. And it's bigger to carry around. Doesn't mean everyone should start on trumpet.

Dry the inside and use a separate, soft cloth to wipe down the outside. This removes oils and residue left by your fingers (and lips :-) ), thus helping maintain the instrument's finish. I would recommend always disassembling for two reasons. First, it's much safer in its case rather than being left (assembled) somewhere else. Second, you will want to ...

I'm also doing a little bit guessing: Given that the small notes fill exactly the time of the trill with the slurred eighth note, I assume, it is a simplification: typically a trill would repeat its base note more than once, often much more than once, depending on the time avaliable, which is influenced by the tempo. So I guess, the statement of the editor ...

That shows the note above the printed one to be played first (G), then the F, then G and F again, before the tune note of E, (printed), followed by the last E in the bar.The stave lines are not special, except that a note shown on a line belongs on a line. In this case, the two lines of stave shown happen to be the E and G lines. Or the F might be F#...

I'm guessing this is probably baroque music. In this period trills and other ornaments have specific ways they should be played; for a trill it is common to start a trill on the note above the one marked. In this case, the notes represented above the flute part are G F G F E. It's pretty unhelpful that they don't show all five stave lines, but I guess the ...
