Eve F. says, "John is a special teacher. I think about his lessons all the time, and we worked together 30 years ago! He successfully prepared me for college auditions as a music major, always showing his love for the music, and his respect for me- no matter how many mistakes I made. When we became colleagues years later, I saw that he is equally effective and patient with students of all levels. He teaches much more than music! I feel lucky to have worked with him, and cannot recommend him highly enough!" Read more

I am a professional musician in New York City and have been teaching for nearly a decade. I have a masters degree from Manhattan School of Music in jazz performance, and have played at many storied venues including Smalls, Nublu, and The Hugh. I love to teach music of all kinds to students, and to me making sure students are excited about playing their instrument is far more important than any scale or technique I might teach them. I am passionate about my students and the joy of watching a student progress and the sense of accomplishment they display is what its all about!

My teaching style is committed to teach music while building self-esteem and keeping the lessons fun. Students play real music that they enjoy, not just piano methods and exercises. I get piano students playing real tunes they enjoy from the first lesson, and I teach using two hands as soon as possible. I teach students to read music at the pace that is appropriate to them. I teach all styles of music, as the students or parents prefer, and I tailor my teaching method to the students; some learn best by reading or listening or by doing....

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?
  • If I have to miss a lesson due to an emergency, what should I do?
  • Can I pick some songs I want to learn?
  • Do you help students audition, and how many of your students have made it?

Recent success stories from people in the Paterson area.
Morgan U.
John is an esteemed musician with plenty of high-level concerts and recordings throughout his career, and an amazing teacher on top of that. I took lessons with him for 6 years, and during that time he consistently tailored his teaching to suit my level and help me grow. He balances encouragement with guidance for improvement. And his vast knowledge of music history and theory brings the music on the page to life. He's helped musicians of all levels improve, and makes lessons fun in the process.

Dave is one of the most professional and knowledgeable teachers I have ever had. He was able to break me out of the rut I was in and get me to look at the fretboard completely differently. He taught complex theory concepts ( at least complex to me) extremely patiently and thoroughly. Weekly lessons always felt personalized, Dave was always prepared for each virtual lesson with a specific concept to teach that was geared toward me and my playing. Thank you for everything Dave! I hope to be able to return soon.
