Learn how to play the Flute with Michael!

I've been playing the flute most of my life and studied with a few of the best flute professors in the country. I have been teaching privately for 7 years. My teaching style is very flexible, though I expect dedication and hard work from my students. As my student you will learn not only flute, but you will gain a general knowledge of music theory and harmony, knowledge of musical phrasing and interpretation, as well as proper movement and body alignment similar to Alexander techniques.

Flute Lessons

The flute is an instrument heard in diverse types of music, from classical pieces to modern jazz, and is played around the world in various cultures. It’s from a family of instruments in the woodwind category, yet it’s unlike any other. The flute is a reedless instrument, producing sound through a flow of air that moves through an opening.

In addition, the flute is one of the earliest known instruments, dating back to paleolithic times in present-day Germany. Instruments in this family include the Western concert flute, the piccolo, and the fife.

Is flute easy to learn?


Because of its relatively simple design, it’s fairly easy to get started with playing basic notes and songs on the flute. Like with all instruments, though, attaining mastery of the instrument will take many years of hard work and dedication. Experienced flute teachers help new students and seasoned flute players learn new techniques, mastering complex music compositions while also gaining an understanding of music theory. It’s not easy, but learning to play the flute well is a satisfying endeavor.

Can I teach myself to play the flute?


You can definitely start learning the flute by teaching yourself. It’s possible to learn the basic fingerings, a few songs, and get a decent tone all on your own. Watching a few online tutorials and videos will also help you learn new techniques and try new songs. Eventually, though, it gets harder and harder to level up without access to great flute teachers. Signing up for the best online flute lessons and in-person coaching will help you learn faster, remedy bad habits, and start playing better than you’ve ever dreamed of. TakeLessons is a great place to find flute lessons.
