The Nuvo student flute is great for the younger player looking to learn the flute or stepping up from a mini flute. Being made from durable high grade plastic means that this flute weighs in at just over 250 grams, an impressive 60% lighter than the average metal flutes, which is great for those longer playing sessions. This Student Flute is a fully fledged instrument with C-foot and straight head joint and the main body plays down to D.

Nuvo Student Flute Straight Head - Black

The plastic revelation: Now children as young as 8 years can begin on a real flute designed with them in mind. The ultra-light construction and interchangeable parts mean that the Nuvo Flute will grow with the student, and the "Firstnote" mouthpiece means they can get a good sound from the first try. Suitable for beginners of any age.

More information on the Nuvo Flute

Firstnote Lip-Plate 
The patented Firstnote lip plate may be beneficial for some very young students in the early stages of learning. It enables students to get a tone right from the very start. This is very encouraging. It can be clicked on and off with ease. The standard lip plate can be introduced when the student is ready. 


Use the tool supplied to lever the lip plate off the head joint. Then simply snap on the new lip plate with a firm squeeze. You will hear it click into position and you can check it is air tight by blocking the end hole of the head joint and blowing directly into the embouchure hole. 


Cleaning 
After each time you play, it's always best to give your flute a good clean using the stick and pull-through supplied. From time to time you can give your flute a bath in some warm soapy water. This is particularly recommended in a school environment where a number of children may be using each instrument. Don't be afraid to use lots of water, your Nuvo flute loves it! You can even play in the shower or outside in the rain! 


Adjustments 
There are a number of adjusting screws on your Nuvo flute. These can be used to make very fine adjustments to the pad clearances. We have provided a tool. We strongly recommend that you ask a flute teacher or technician to help with any adjustments. The flute is set up perfectly before it leaves the factory and is unlikely to require any adjustment. If you're unsure, it's always best to consult an expert. 


Pads 
The pads on your Nuvo flute are made from a durable silicone rubber compound. This makes them resistant to wear and water damage. In the unlikely event that your pads need replacing, you can access them by removing the key caps. 


To remove the key caps, push the rubber part of the tool firmly against the key cap and turn anticlockwise. The key cap will lift out. You can customize your flute by purchasing coloured key cap sets. Ask your local music dealer for details. 


O Rings 
All the seals on your Nuvo flute are made using silicone rubber O rings. You will see them on the head joint and the foot joint. From time to time you should apply a small amount of the O ring grease provided which will keep them supple and help with assembly of your flute. No need to apply too much as it will attract dust
