Key of G
The piece I am performing for you today is called Advance Australia Fair, composed by Peter McCormick in about 1878.
It’s the national anthem of Australia, so I’m playing an appropriately colored green and gold flute.
This performance is in the key of G, which is the official key for Australia’s national anthem.
What that means is that you can play along with performances and broadcasts of the anthem at local and national events, such as school assemblies, sports matches, the Olympics, and other official events.
