I have moved a domain "http://flymusic" to "http://www.1.flymusic".

The "Change of Address Tool" in webmasters tools won't allow me to tell Google about the new URL because it is a sub-domain. and the error is "Restricted to root level domains only"

I see in Google webmaster guide that:

"Make sure that your new site is not a subdomain. For example, you can use www.example.com, but not www.example.com/newsite or http://newsite.example.com."

This site has several thousand links and was doing well on SERPs and I would hate to lose the momentum that I have established.

Thank you.

If you still own the first domain you can do a 301 redirect. Check https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93633
