Updating the RCM Flute Syllabus

Dear Flutists,

I just received a notice about the Royal Conservatory of Music (Canadian flute exam board in Toronto) that there will be some upcoming changes to the RCM flute syllabus.
Here's the notification I received from the Acquisitions Editor at the RCM:

Dear Jennifer,
I was just looking at your website and thought you might like to know that the Royal Conservatory of Music is currently developing a graded flute series to serve the Preparatory level through Grade 8 of the RCM syllabus.(The Syllabus is being revised to "fill in" the missing grades.)

The new series will also include two studies books, a technique book, and orchestral excerpts will be published in 2010. The official launch will be at the NFA convention in Anaheim.

This is great news all around.
Can't wait to see the new RCM flute publications! Yay! :>)

I read online that the new books will be available at the NFA convention.
Are they already purchasable elsewhere?
I don't yet have them, do you?

Hi Jen,
Yes they are available in most music stores. There are quite a few changes that have been made.

Dear Mistri,
Sorry, is that a "C#" flute?
I'm not sure what that is.

If your flute's headjoint cork is in the wrong place, any flute repair person can fix it for you in five minutes for about five dollars or less.
