At the beginning level, renting a flute is the best option. Yamaha, Armstrong, and Gemeinhardt are dependable models. For younger, smaller flutists, the student might consider using a curved headjoint to make to the flute easier to hold. As the student progresses, consider purchasing a more advanced model with open hole keys and B foot joint.

Many of our adult flute students are complete beginners, while others are former flutists now returning to an old hobby. We also have students who are more advanced and are looking to take their skills in both advanced classical repertoire and/or jazz improvization to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
The flute is a great instrument to begin in elementary school. Young flutists are able to progress quickly and many school programs allow flute players to participate in both band and orchestra. Typically, Musika recommends waiting until age 8 before beginning flute lessons.
