Are you or someone you love interested in taking your beginner flute skills to the next level?

This course is designed for those that have begun to develop skills on the flute and want to learn how to go to the next level.

If you are a beginner flutist who wants to keep developing your knowledge about flute performance, this course can help you increase your flute skills.

If you’re a band director, or instrumental music teacher but flute is not your primary instrument, this course can help you give your flutists a good foundation in flute instruction.

We’ll cover:

  • A review of the notes we’ll use in 6 beginner songs
  • Embouchure development
  • Breathing technique
  • Gaining the octave & what to do if you can’t
  • A discussion of flats, sharps, keys & scales
  • Practice methods including long tones & scales
  • What to do next to keep progressing

This course is taught through video lessons where I take you step by step through each topic. I will demonstrate and give pointers along the way. We’ll play songs and scales, and learn how to practice. 

You don’t need to read music to learn how to play flute in this course. But you do need some beginner skills.

Come and join the course and take your flute skills to the next level!
