North America’s largest flute store reports a sales spike of 30 percent, largely thanks to the Lizzo effect.

Sales are up by 30%, but now the number of broken flutes in the landfill are up by 50%

She’s talented and beautiful, has to be said xxx

That’s great !!! If only she could actually play the flute. I do not begrudge her the pop success but if that flute playing is driving up flute sales…..sad indeed !!!!!
Granted, she doesn’t play at a professional/soloist level (news flash: that’s not her job!), but she does play like she had a good teacher who made her practice. And she sounds like she still practices.
What are people doing with all those flutes?
I guess you’ve never seen “American Pie”.
