Learn to Play the Piccolo
The piccolo is an instrument constructed of wood or plastic, and silver, or a combination of these materials. It is a half-sized flute, playing the higher range of notes. And while the piccolo is used mainly in orchestral pieces, there are a few pieces written specifically for it.
When learning to play the piccolo, you'll learn that although the fingerings are the same as the flute, the embouchure and other differences do require a separate effort to learn.
