Frequently GET STARTED
What Age Should My Child Start Lessons?
Learning the flute requires that you not only be able to physically handle the instrument, but also have the lung capacity to produce the right sound and tone. We recommend starting woodwind lessons no earlier than age eight. At this point, students tend to have the necessary physical attributes that allow them to be successful when learning to play the clarinet or saxophone.
In addition to physical development, reading and comprehension skills must also be developing in order for a student to achieve proficiency.
Do I Need a Flute to Start the Lessons?
Yes, you will need a flute to start the lessons. Without a woodwind, you won’t be able to practice between lessons and make weekly progress. If cost is a concern, good beginner instrument is inexpensive. Our staff can help you find the right one for you.
