"While flutes are relatively inexpensive compared to the other woodwinds, Musika suggests renting an instrument for beginng players. As the player becomes more advanced the student can consider purchasing a more advanced model with open-hole keys and a B foot joint. Armstrong and Gemeinhardt are fine for beginners, and Yamaha is great for beginning/intermediate level flutists. For young players who are smaller in size, the student can consider using a curved headjoint (called a ""candy cane"" headjoint) to facilitate playing."
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home Flute lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Musika offers customized lessons for each student. Additionally, teachers will focus on posture, breathing, tone, articulation, note-reading, and instrument care. Musika teachers want every student to excel and they will do their best to help each player realize his or her potential!
There is no age limit to learning the flute! The flute is a fairly easy instrument to hold for young and old players. Our teachers will work with any age or level, and feel comfortable starting from the beginning with older players.
The minimum age for beginning flute lessons would be around age 7. Any earlier will be too frustrating for the player. The flute does require a lot of air and the student needs to be big enough to blow properly and hold the flute up without letting the head tilt. If a young student is very eager to begin early, consider recorder lessons.
