Chinese Flutes

Chinese Dizi Flute


The Chinese Dizi Flute is usually made of bamboo, but also comes in rosewood and sandalwood.  It is similar to the silver flute in that it is a transverse flute. It utilizes a small piece of bamboo membrane that is glued to one of the holes (dimo hole in picture to the left) on the flute to give it a unique sound.  It comes in a variety of sizes for different pitches.   

Chinese music is written using the numbered musical notation called Jianpu.  The numbers refer to the degree of each note on the scale.  The lines designate the length of the notes.  The dots above and below the numbers indicate which octave to play the note.
