    Teacher's performance bits for reference


    Based on the archaeological findings, Flutes are the earliest known musical instruments, as many flutes dating back to about 43,000 to 35,000 years ago have been found in the Swabian Jura region of present-day Germany. This establishes a developed musical tradition existed since the earliest period of modern human presence in Europe.
