Appendixes provide further information on such subjects as flute classifications, types of flutes and their parts, key and tone hole names, head joint options, orchestra and opera audition excerpts, and biographies of people mentioned in the definitions. Contributed articles include "An Easy Guide to Checking Your Flute Tuning and Scale" by Trevor Wye; "Flute Clutches" by David Shorey; "Early Music on Modern Flute" by Barthold Kuijken; and "Crowns and Stoppers" and "Boehm Flute Scales from 1847 to the Present:The Short Story" by Gary Lewis.
