That’s the ‘chromatic’ scale, in other words you have ‘all of the colours’. If there’s one thing that you must learn, it’s this. You need to know where all of the notes are on your flute. Be picky about correct fingerings. Little finger stays down for E, proper chromatic Bb fingering (‘long’ Bb), top finger off for vented middle D. Well worth going slowly to get this all right as you’ll be stuck with the results for a long time.
