Private Flute Lessons Cultivating Creativity Through Music

Flute Lessons

The flute is one of the oldest musical instruments yet is still one of the most popular today. Flutes are part of the standard classical orchestral instrumentation, woodwinds, and folk ensembles. In recent years many non-classical musical styles, such as jazz, pop, and rock and roll, have begun incorporating the flute into their ensembles. The flute is also a wonderful solo instrument, and there are many very beautiful pieces of music written specifically for it. You can learn more about the flute’s history from Wikipedia. During Flute lessons, students learn all aspects of music and skills to master the instrument:

  • Flute technique
  • Sound development
  • Breath control
  • Reading Music
  • Improvisation
  • Music Theory
  • Ear Training
Individual Teaching Method
We offer 30-minute, 45-minute, and 60-minute private flute lessons. For students younger than 7, we recommend starting with a recorder.

Individual Teaching Method

The lessons we provide are tailored to the needs of each student, their musical interests, and their objectives in music. We design individual practice routines for each student, exercising different areas of music (instrument technique, sound, and intonation, rhythm, harmony, melody and form, improvisation, sight-reading, ear training, etc.). All lessons are taught by actively performing artists to ensure you learn from the best. Our instructors have many years of experience teaching children and adults and are passionate about passing on their skills to others. Whatever your goals are – to be the first Flute in a school band, audition for a jazz group, or just to play for your family – we can help you. Sharon Music Academy flute students successfully auditioned and performed with Junior, Senior District, and All-State Orchestras and Jazz Bands. And, of course, all our students have an opportunity to join our woodwind ensemble.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should I start to learn the flute?
It is best to start at eight or nine when a child develops the lung capacity required to play correctly. A recorder or fife would be a good instrument to play at a younger age as it helps develop musicality, is easier to make a sound out of, and is cheaper—children who begin their studies with a recorder progress faster on the flute than those who don’t.
What type of flute should I start to learn on?
A. It is easier for young kids to start on a C-flute with closed holes and an offset G.
My child plays flute in the school band. What are the benefits of “private lessons”?
In many schools, band rehearsals are held as a big group lesson, with little to no focus on flute specifically or your child individually. In addition, the student is mainly playing in the second and third octaves so that they can be heard. Beautiful tone and vibrato are developed in the flute's lowest register, which is not often used in a band. Private lessons will, therefore, focus on your child’s learning, improve his or her abilities for band participation and expand the range of his or her flute mastery and repertoire.
Where can I get a flute?
Even for a beginner, it is important to have a quality instrument.  You can rent a flute locally at K&C Music. If you know what flute you want to buy, you can also try Flute World.
