Flutes of different kinds have been around for thousands of years, and they are one of the most expressive and fun instruments. As you study flute, you'll learn songs that inspire you as well as essential skills such as air control, articulation, sight reading, and ear training. Use the Ask a Question feature or book lessons to get started. I'm looking forward to working with you!

My son is in 10th grade and has been studying Saxophone with Ian for almost 4 years. Ian is great on teaching, nice to student, always responsive to questions. Highly recommended.
Yuka O.
Me and my 12-year-old son started saxophone two years ago together. Ian had a great guide to us who had never played the instrument. My growth is slow due to age issues, (of course satisfied) but my son's growth was great. My son now has a great deal of confidence as a jazz player, and he was able to work on other things positively too. We met Ian then became more into music and jazz. He is patient and will tell you until we can do. Ian is mainly jazz, but he is also very familiar with brass band and classical saxophone too. He is a working musician who do live performance, gig, and compose in various places. He loves music from the heart, his solo is so beatuiful. Ian's lessons has changed our life. We really grateful for giving us his time.

Flute:
A musical instrument in the woodwind group. Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening. Starting with the basics we would first learn breathing and fingering techniques, notes, reading, rhythms, and songs. As the student progresses scales, theory and soloing will be taught.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

While clarinet is my main instrument, I am equally comfortable teaching beginner flute to students of all ages. I have found that many of the same principals and techniques of clarinet apply when teaching flute.

Jason was great, and exactly what I was hoping for. I am looking forward to working with him for the rest of our time together.
Kelly
My son had his first lesson today and has already learned so many things! When the lesson ended, he smiled and told me it was so much fun and the teacher was nice. My son is a beginner at clarinet and usually has a hard time with learning new things, but he was able to understand Jason very well.
Jason is friendly, focused, patient, knowledgeable, confident, professional, and cool. He is organized and communicated clearly what we need to work on and what is the upcoming plan. Jason is awesome and exceeded my expectations. My son is really looking forward to his next lesson!

With Over 12,000 FUN FILLED FLUTE LESSONS TAUGHT, You Too Can Achieve
Your Dream ! My 30 years of teaching experience with a 6 year average length of
study my Flute Beginners quickly achieve Musical and Technical Artistry !

ONLINE REMOTE LEARNING IS ACTUALLY VERY EFFECTIVE !

PLUS, THE “MASTERFUL FLUTE PLAYER” IS ALREADY INSIDE YOU !!
Over my nearly 4 decade career in Classical Music, I have crafted a teaching style that
minimizes practice time, maximizes progress and allows my students, ages 7 through
adult, to have fun while practicing.

I began my music education wanting to be a recitalist and orchestral player but my
career goals changed when I started teaching flute and saw how my students
needed to have a more solid direction than what they were experiencing.
I realized, largely due to Conservatory training in the art of teaching private
flute lessons, that I had the insights into helping them achieve their aspirations
to play the flute.

The secret lies in ...

Hi, I am lucky to have found Julie very early in life so that I can make the most of
my high school years. I began studying flute with her a few years
ago. I was extremely shy and frankly not functioning very well. My academics
were not the problem but it was the "social thing". Even though I knew who I was,
I was always thrown off by how I was supposed to fit in the world.

It's like Julie rolled up her sleeves and went to work. I felt loved, safe and
important ! She started teaching me the flute and through her love of music and
life she taught me to trust myself and that is when my life changed. Everything
began to "click" and for the first time I was not afraid.

I now have many friends, still excelling in my academics but am now working on
difficult solos and orchestral excerpts. I look forward with courage and am
enjoying life instead of fearing it. My problems are problems many young
people experience I think.

In my experience as a member of her flute studio I saw her take a student from
absolute beginner to auditioning for the Boston Symphony Youth Orchestra
performing solos at age 18 that are entrance audition pieces for acceptance
into Yale University's Graduate Program. though my goals in music
are not as serious, she treats me with the same love and caring as her students
who have career aspirations in music.

Julie helps develop that confidence in those who sorely need to feel they have the
right to belong. For a teacher, Julie has it all.
Sophie
Julie's method of teaching is so thorough that it took me from level one solos to
level six in just three years. She is the kind of teacher that makes you want to
practice hard and do well for her !

I began my studies with Julie when I was just ten years old. I am now thirteen.
At nine I also studied piano and violin but it wasn't long after that I dropped the
other two instruments to focus solely on Flute because Julie made each lesson
so much fun !

She also encourages participation in sports and always values high academic
achievement. She wants me to be a "well rounded" student with a positive
attitude so I will be successful not only in my high school years but throughout
my college years and beyond.

She is giving me the gift of music to take with me on my journey through life.
Julie takes the time to listen if I had a rough day and has even attended one
of my field hockey games and varsity swim meets. She says that seeing how
I function in other venues helps her to fine tune her approach to teaching me
the flute.

Start with 45 minute lessons but quickly advance to 60 minute lessons to get
the most out of every session with Julie. They are so valuable !
Laurelle
It is because of Julie's expertise and dedication that I am now successfully
playing the flute and performing in several select groups locally, achieving high
scores in competitions and beautifully expressing myself in solo recitals.
All of this would not have happened without her tenacity and I am so grateful.

I now sit first chair in my high school"select" wind ensemble but it wasn't always like
that. When I was nine I began playing the flute and my mother found me a private
flute teacher named Julie. I was quite a challenge for her because I was extremely
shy and didn't talk much. In fact, it took me several years to muster up a few
words even though there were a lot of thoughts going on in my head.

Julie was so kind and patient with me. It was like she knew exactly the anxiety I
was feeling and little by little after a few years gradually I was able to express
myself out loud. She knew of my intelligence and passions and made it her
quest to help me communicate so I could find more enjoyment in life.

When Covid hit and everyone went into remote learning, Julie gave all her students
a second free lesson per week because she wanted to keep us motivated and
positive. She is truly amazing !!

Playing the flute has given me so much joy, and it is my dream to pass that joy along to others. Whether you're just starting out, picking the flute up after a long time away, or looking to hone your skills, I can help you reach your flute goals! In all my lessons, beginner to advanced, students learn how to make beautiful music, sight read, understand basic music theory, and practice safely. We work out of the Rubank method book, but I also utilize handwritten exercises and songs. I also always encourage my students to bring music they want to learn. I've covered everything from classical and jazz music to pop songs and show tunes!

Absolute Beginners: In our very first lesson, students learn the parts of the flute and how to make a sound. We learn about flute care, and how to correctly hold the flute. Basic music theory is introduced at this level, once the student can consistently make a sound with the headjoint. Securing the basics at this level is very important, but with games ...

"Bill is great, and I would recommend him for players of all ages. I played flute in middle school and high school and wanted to get back into playing after having not touched my instrument for 15+ years. I found Bill on Take Lessons and was excited to begin lessons after reading his many glowing reviews. Although I was nervous about essentially having to start from scratch all over again with the flute, Bill has been kind, patient and lots of fun to work with. He is an extremely talented musician, and is very good at figuring out what I'm doing wrong with respect to air flow, embouchure, etc., and recommending how to correct it. Although I have a lot of work ahead of me I'm so enjoying playing again, and this time with much better sound, thanks to Bill!"
