I have a nephew, eleven years old, who wants to start learning the flute next september.
I have seen that there are flute models with two central round keys either inline with the others or slightly offset towards the small fingers of the left hand if I understand well.
He does not have large hands for his age but it is difficult to tell how they will grow. Is it a good idea to start with such an offset-G flute when young and then switch to an inline one in a few years when he will be larger?
Can he keep using an offset-G flute for all his life if he persists in playing the flute?
