Learn to play Flute
Music Academy South is pleased to provide outstanding instruction for students who are starting to play flute. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced students are all welcome
Beginners will learn how to assemble, tune and take care of their flute, correct breathing technique, embouchure, and posture. As lessons advance, the student will learn sight-reading from the staff, fingerings, and improvisation skills.
Too often a band director doesn't have enough time to train each of their students on their instrument. That's where private flute instruction at Music Academy South will help fill in the gaps. Learning the fundamentals of playing the flute and developing sight reading skills will help to boost the student's confidence level in a band situation.
