Opening Illustration[edit]

The caption under the first photo is wrong. The photo showns only Japanese and western flutes. Definitely not from "around the world" as it claims. Where are all the others, Asian, African American, European etc? Either the picture or the caption should be changed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.82.179.36 (talk) 20:14, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Edit request April 2017[edit]

Change image caption "Western concert flute with musical notes" to "Western concert flute on top of sheet music". "Musical notes" is just an inaccurate (imprecise) description (I'm a musician, I should know...) 69.165.196.103 (talk) 02:58, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Partly done: Strictly speaking, it's not inaccurate—sheet music does contain musical notes—but I agree it's imprecise (and potentially misleading, since it could mean notes about music). I'm not persuaded, however, that it's important to say that the flute is "on top of sheet music". In fact, the background seems quite irrelevant. So I just changed it to read "Western concert flute". If you really think it should mention the sheet music, feel free to reopen this edit request by changing the "answered" parameter from yes to no. And thanks for your help in improving the article.

Actually, my though exactly (about it being irrelevant), but I proposed a rather conservative option since there is another, similar, image nearby with an almost identical caption. 69.165.196.103 (talk) 20:51, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
