There are only 20 kids in your school!?! There are over 200 in my class alone! There are over 800 in my school!
Don't blink.

my old school only had 20 students (on it's good year) my current (actually, its also considered my old school, I'm going to a new one next year) school has around, I dont know, 600? and that school was so small because it was a jewish school in a place with barely any jews....

Errr, I've been playing flute for 5 years, oboe for 1 year (I'm horrible), I'm learning piano, I'm learning how to sing, and I want to do even more later.


Spoiler:
I wonder what Artemis plays. Probably everything :P LOL jk

I play the flute. ^_^
I have been playing it for... roughly 3,5 years, I think, but I´m only now starting to get the hang of it. I do like it a bit, though; It sort of brings me to a different mental state.

It takes a long time to get the hang of the flute, definitely. Although it depends on how much you practice.

My school had a recital on Thrursday night. I played a blues song and Inspector Gadget theme. Don't ask. There was a girl from my class who played the flute. It sounded ok, but the notes weren't very clear. It was like she needed to clean her flute or something. Do all flutes sound slightly muffled?

Definitely not, lol.

Played properly, the flute should sound clear, high and light. It sounds like this girl is placing her embouchure incorrectly; if it's too far left or right, or if it's directed away from the mouthpiece instead of into it, then the air's isn't flowing into the flute properly. That's why it sounds muffled.

Or it could be that she's nervous and her breathing is shallow. That could be it too :)
