Theâ€¯Â piccoloÂ â€¯is half the size of aâ€¯Â flute andÂ plays higher notes,Â â€¯with a range an octave above.Â Â
The Piccolo is a member of the flute family, but is a well known instrument in its own right. Whilst it may not be as popular as some of its sibling instruments, the Piccolo is an enchanting instrument with an extremely distinct and beautiful sound. It often lends a light, high-pitched sound to musical pieces.Â
