My new dizi

I have just got myself a new dizi (the chi­nese flute).

This is my sec­ond dizi in C scales. My first D scales dizi was bought about 2 years ago when I started to learn dizi.

For your infor­ma­tion, the fol­low­ing pic­ture shows the dimo (flute mem­brane) stick­ing on one of the holes so that the dizi will sound nicer.

I used to be very jeal­ous when see­ing Sean (used to be my ex-teacher) car­ry­ing so many dizi’s in his bag because he looks very pro. Okay lah he doesn’t “look” pro, he IS the pro.

I have always wanted to be able to have all kinds of dizi. So now I got myself a very pro dizi as well. Accord­ing to my teacher, this is the best of the best. Although it’s a lit­tle bit expen­sive to pay RM350 for a bam­boo stick, but the Chi­nese always say “in order to do the work well, one must sharpen the tool first”. No regret at all buy­ing it.

I have totally no idea how to read the words. But isn’t it looks cool?

There is still a long long way to go before I can become a good dizi player. The long way I’m talk­ing about is not just 6 or 7 months, it could take up to 6 or 7 years! But “mil­lion meters sky­scraper is also built from ground”, at least I’ve taken another step by get­ting myself a bet­ter dizi.

I can see more to come.

Hi Sara,

Sorry for late reply. I was away for CNY holidays.

I don’t think I have all the answers for your ques­tions. But I’ll try my best.

Yes the bam­boo flute is called Dizi and yes all my dizi’s are Qudi.

I never played a west­ern flute before thus I can’t tell if they are the same or not. But what I know is the fin­ger­ing is def­i­nitely different.

About the book, I have no idea where you can find it in Sin­ga­pore. But if you can’t, maybe you can call my music school and ask them. You can find the web­site at com­ment no. 9 above.

Hope these helps.

Hi Sara,

I asked my friend and he sug­gested you to go to Bras Basah Com­plex near the Raf­fles Hotel. You can sim­ply find every­thing you want in any of the music shops.

Dizi is quite low main­te­nance actu­ally so it doesn’t come with clean­ing kits. Just keep it dry and change the dimo (flute mem­brane) will do.
