Five years ago I started this little website. I wanted a way to share the music I played so that everyone can play it. I had a small amount of subscribers and I just expected this to remain some little thing that I had.
Here we are, five years later, with over 6500 Facebook followers, 1000 Blogger followers, and 1100 Youtube subscribers. There are almost 20 million views on this website. Fluters Music is one of the first to show up on google searches for "Flute sheet music". My videos have almost 400,000 total views. I never imagined having all of this when Fluters Music began.
I started the website during 7th grade; I was not very good at it, nor was I very good at flute, but I still worked on it anyways. Over the years there has been a lot of "drama": I hid everything on the blog when people pretended to be me, there was a lot of arguing over copying and stealing, I had two other people on the website for a week or so... So much has changed.
This website has done so much for me. I wrote about it on college applications, on my National Honor Society application, and on several scholarship applications. Of all the things I write about, this is the one people talk to me about. I don't really talk about it publicly because I don't want people to think that I think too highly of myself, but when it comes up it's something that others really find interesting. How could a website dedicated to flute music be so popular?
I really just want to thank everyone for using my website. I know I get lazy sometimes, but for the most part I really do enjoy uploading new songs and new covers for all of you. You have really given me something to be proud of.
In less than two weeks I will be graduating from high school. Last night was my final band banquet, and my last "official" moments as drum major. While I am leaving all of that behind, I will still keep up with this website. How often will it be updated? That will depend on everything. I hope that all of you can stay with me and the website for as long as possible. I hope I don't disappoint anyone, especially considering all you have given me.
