  • 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.
