    That was very helpful Woodduck, but a bit verbose. This video teaches us how to play the flute in eight seconds — among other things:

    A conductor is a musician who's adept at following many people at the same time.

    Yes, I agree... I'd like to make a similar video with that purpose, how would you think could be better made besides being "less verbose"?

    I just want to be able to follow the sheet music with my eyeballs and hear it in my head as if it were a concert hall performance.

    It was worth sitting through the irrelevant parts of that Monty Python bit. Now I know how to play the flute. But what I really hope John Cleese will teach me is his funny walk.

    Slightly off topic but ...
    Who needs the dots to play a symphony? Well not the Aurora Orchestra last night I heard them play the Eroica Symphony entirely from memory on one of the prom concerts that I have recorded, it was absolutely fabulous it was conducted by Nicholas Collon it was a rhythmic and lively performance, did any of you manage to catch it?
