This course is being offered on Monday, May 24 at 11:30 am and Friday, May 28 at 10:00 am. In this class, I will cover the fundamentals of playing the flute including working on tone, technique, articulation, breathing, music reading, basic theory, and ear training. After evaluating the learner’s prior experience on flute, through discussion and playing, I will tailor the lesson to the needs of the individual.
I use a variety of techniques in my teaching such as demonstrating, call and response style playing, playing along with the teacher, discussion, asking questions. No prior knowledge is necessary, but students will need a properly working flute and a willingness to try new things. If you already have experience playing flute, please have a short tune or scale ready to play.
I believe that learning a musical instrument should be a fun and rewarding experience. I strive to keep my classes challenging, but always joyful and encouraging! For those who are interested there is the opportunity to continue with private lessons on a weekly basis.
