For a beginning flutist, Musika suggests renting an instrument at first, and purchasing later on if the student enjoys and wants to continue playing long-term. Yamaha is a really reliable brand, and Armstrong or Gemeinhardt are also solid choices. Once the student progresses, he or she could look into purchasing a more advanced model with open hole keys and a B foot joint.
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!
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 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.
