Charlotte .. says, " I think Ann started around the holiday season, she’s had about one academic semester of once per week classes. She was still 2 years old when she started at Ottley’s Music School. Now she can find middle C, identify A, B or C anywhere on the keyboard, read notations like piano meaning play softly, fortissimo meaning play loudly, and quarter rest. She has been introduced to half and full notes and rests, but doesn’t yet consistently apply them. She can play simple 3-note sequences with either the left or right hand but sometimes prefers to play all notes with either her thumb or index finger rather than following the assigned fingers for each key. It’s really an extraordinary amount of progress for her age. I’ve been surprised" Read more

Are flute lessons worth it?

Flute lessons are worth it, especially for those committed to mastering professional techniques. Studying under a seasoned flautist accelerates learning and improves proficiency in playing techniques. Feedback from an encouraging mentor helps you get through challenges and avoid developing poor habits in posture or finger positions.

What do you learn in a flute lesson?

In an average flute lesson, you'll learn how to:

  • Breathe the right way when you play.
  • Keep your pace steady when you play.
  • Place your fingers on the right spots for each note.
  • Keep your body straight and in the right position.
  • Read sheet music.
  • Practice different musical scales.

You can get pretty good at playing a simple song on the flute in about 6 to 7 months.

What age is good to start flute lessons?

A good age for kids to start flute lessons is from 6 to 9 years old. Adult learners can start flute classes at any age.

A child is ready to begin flute classes when:

  • The child's hands are large enough to hold the instrument.
  • A kid has sufficient lung capacity for the breath control needed to play the flute.
  • Children can concentrate for at least 30 minutes.

How long does a flute lesson last?

A flute lesson lasts about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the student's needs. Beginners often start with shorter lessons to slowly increase their focus and improve their flute-playing skills.

How do I find a flute teacher near me?

Find a flute teacher near you by searching for private instructors here on Lessons. You can also ask for the availability of teachers at local music stores. Flute classes might be available at community colleges too.

Before choosing a flute teacher near you, don't forget to:

  • Collect prices for 3 different flute courses to compare them.
  • Read what people have said about them on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for a list of students they have taught in the past for references.
  • Check with other parents if the teacher is popular with kids.
  • Get a copy of the agreement and the schedule before the first lesson.
  • Wait until you've had a few lessons and feel that the teacher is a good fit before paying for a whole month.

What questions should you ask a flute teacher?

Before you book lessons with a flute teacher, ask them:

  • How long have you been teaching the flute?
  • What music school did you go to?
  • Have you played the flute professionally?
  • Can I try a lesson for free before I decide to keep going?
  • What ages or skill levels do you like to teach?
  • What kind of flute should I get if I'm just starting?
  • How much should I practice between our lessons?
  • Can you tell me about any flute books or things that will help me get better?
  • Will I get homework?
  • Can you teach me in a different method that helps me learn best?
  • What should I bring to our lessons, and how long does a lesson last?
  • How many types of flute music can you teach me?
  • Can I get a copy of the schedule and rates?
