Does anybody know what I mean? One of those windmill things that is supposed to go round when you "blow right"? (Yes, I know, a very poor explanation.) I tried googling it and got lots of sites that told me about flute windmills to cut wood with :blink: which obviously isn't what I meant. So I'd really like to know two things:-

 

1  What is it actually called?

 

2  Is it any good?

 

Would love some feedback. My flute is languishing in its case. :(

One of my flute teachers let me try hers. Fun and another way to practice focussing your air.

My teacher lent me hers. I found it really helpful. I always struggle to direct my air correctly, but the gadget helps to make it visual.

Thanks for your feedback! My flute took a back seat right through both lockdowns, and my tone is absolutely woeful. I'm wondering if one of these little gadgets would help me get going again.
