After far too much thinking, I have added a revised fingering chart for my 10 hole Chromatic system instruments to the site. It may be a bit confusing but it's the best I could come up with, any suggestions for future editions of it are welcome. You will see this "For a 10 hole fingering chart, see this link; http://www.skiphealy.com/chart/" in all sections pertaining to 10 hole instruments. I hope it helps!!
Fingering chart for the Healy Flute Companies 10-hole chromatic system for Fifes, Flutes and Piccolos:
I know this chart will be a bit confusing but if you take your time you can understand it. This is the best system that we could come up with for ease of learning. Feel free to contact me with any suggestions!
Built just like our solid, six-hole fife, the ten-hole fife allows you to play in a full, accurate chromatic range without half-holing or cross-fingering. The Healy ten-hole fife is extremely popular for all forms of fife music but its tonal range truly shines in solo or ensemble work.
The first instrument developed by the Healy Flute Company, the Healy fife is built to last and can be played in tune across three octaves. The Bb fife is available with three (3) tone hole size options, "STANDARD" (smallest), "SPECIAL" (medium), and "DELUXE" (largest)and can be built as 6 or 10 hole fifes.
The Healy Flute Company offers extensive repair services for simple-system wooden flutes, Boehm flutes, fifes, and piccolos. Instrument repairs are priced on a per job basis with a shop time cost of $100/hour. All repairs come with a one year guarantee starting on the date that the instrument is shipped back to the customer.
In conjunction with the world famous resort community of Arosa, Switzerland and their "MUSIK-KURSWOCHEN" (music course week), I will be teaching a week long series of classes on Irish flute and tin whistle music. The program will take place JULY 22nd - AUGUST 2nd, 2014. I will be posting information and videos about the event very soon!!! Imagine, learning about traditional Irish music high in the Swiss Alps, staying in a beautiful hotel called "Hotel Hohe Promenade" a 3 star hotel with AMAZING food and service...
