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

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.

Will Reyes Music Lessons
Sonny S.
The guy's really cool. Over the years, he's taught me and my son a lot about the guitar and drums. He doesn't really beat around the bush and we both respond very well to that style of teaching.
Music With Ben
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.
