Heidi has been an excellent flute teacher for our 14 year old son. We started taking lesson with her about 3 months ago, working on a level 6 solo piece for the All County audition. Heidi uses great techniques and give clear instructions. She goes above and beyond during each lesson, making video recording of her playing and email them to my son for practicing. She also make audio comments over the video recordings that my son has emailed to her between lessons. She's always pleasant to be with and continues to be punctual. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for coaching at any level.

Flute is one of the easiest woodwinds to learn to play! I picked it up as part of my degree program in university. Instruction through the Intermediate level will be given using standard method books and easier repertoire, progressing into standard flute repertoire.

Excellent! Couldn't have been better! I'm an adult beginner on flute, but play guitar and have played both tenor sax and clarinet in the past, so I come with a mixed set of skills. Ricardo asked me my goals and assessed my strengths and weaknesses. He was very patient and receptive to all my questions. In my first lesson I've already learned techniques which have improved my playing. Ricardo's resume of performing and teaching give me great confidence and payed a role in choosing him to be my teacher. I feel very fortunate to have connected with him!

Ricardo is an excellent teacher. He is a skilled musician and along with that he is kind, patient and encouraging with our kids. We started with our older son getting saxophone lessons with him and seeing how good he is with kids we asked if he can try teaching our younger one Piano. Our 5 yr old son enjoys getting lesson from him. I have already recommended Ricardo to a friend and would continue to do so.

Why TakeLessons?

Flute Lessons

The flute is one of the most popular instruments for students learning music, and for good reason. It’s fairly easy to learn, is one of the most affordable instruments to purchase or rent, and it can be used in playing all styles of music. Flute is prevalent in orchestra arrangements and jazz ensembles, and there is a large selection of solo pieces for flute.

If you’re a beginner, private flute lessons help you develop your skill and technique faster. Playing the flute requires understanding your embouchure, which is the position of your mouth, and how it affects your tone. For flute, your embouchure even affects the octave of the music you’re playing. A flute teacher can help correct issues before they become bad habits.

Because the flute is so popular, most school bands have between ten and twenty students playing the flute. While band directors are well-trained musicians, most just don’t have the resources to help you excel at your instrument. By taking private flute lessons, you can improve on the technical skills you’re learning in band class, and your flute teacher can help enhance your practice schedule so you become proficient quickly. If you’re struggling with learning your instrument, your flute instructor can help you identify why you’re having trouble and can give you specific guidance.

All musicians, no matter what the instrument, know the most important tool in learning and excelling is practice. Flute lessons help you establish good practice habits, through both the classes themselves, and through the expectations involved outside of the lessons.
