Dear readers,

Welcome to the piccolo edition of The Flute Examiner! I thought it might be rather fun to share with our readers how this special edition first started. As a bit of a background information, Amanda and I both completed our doctorates in the past two years. Most people realize that this is a rather daunting task and I am not sure either of us could have survived that last stretch without the help of our friends and family. Amanda and I talked quite a bit during those last few months and we both had to deal with managing our schedules while completing our research, defending the research, and for me, giving a final recital.

While Amanda was preparing to undergo her examination, she asked me to take over during her busiest month as content editor. I thought, what better way to prepare myself for my own examination than to focus on using my research for an entire edition. I gathered a few topics on the piccolo that I thought might be of interest to the readers, threw in a couple of interviews, ran it by Amanda and we decided to go for it. Little did we know it would be one of the most popular editions that we have published. At that point we decided to dedicate one edition each year to the piccolo.

This edition is a favorite of mine because I love the growth that the piccolo has seen as a solo instrument in the last few decades. Composers and performers are continuing to explore the potential the instrument has for color and nuance. This is an exciting time for the piccolo and piccolo players as makers explore new mechanisms, new headjoint options, and even new and reinvented instruments being introduced to the market.

As always, we hope you enjoy our latest edition!
