  • Taking Up An Instrument

    Hollie Macdonald MMus ABRSMDip Flute Teacher (South East London) Picture Flute Lessons : Taking Up The Flute Children: It sounds obvious, but a student needs to be big enough to hold the flute, which is why so many teachers recommend the starting age to be 8 years old (can stretch to 7 years if the child can manage it)! A bad experience struggling to hold a flute can obviously hinder a child's first...
  • Tips for Efficient Practice Editor's Pick

    Helena Gourd Flute Teacher (North West London) Picture Practice makes perfect! Or does it? During my time at music college, I spent much of my time practising in a small, windowless practice room whilst the birds whistled outside and normal, civilian life continued.

  • A Holistic Approach to Playing the Flute

    Jane Fisher Flute Teacher (South West London) Picture I like to adopt a "holistic" approach to my teaching. Tone quality, posture, finger technique and breath control are all extremely important.

  • Does mental practice help musicians or not? Editor's Pick

    Sirius Chau Flute Teacher (South West London) Picture I was introduced the idea of 'Mental Practice' when I got to music college. It is definitely a fabulous idea, not just because it saves much of your time when you might be sitting in the practice room but practising nothing, but it also prevents over-practising and therefore reduces the chance of getting hurt. For me, although I...

If you phone in the morning and what you require is in stock it should come the next day. Alternatively, you can order from them...
  • Which beginner flute books are the best?

    Fiona Slominska Flute Teacher (Manchester) Picture In my opinion, the best beginner book is Flute Basics by Sally Adams. It comes with a CD, a fingering chart, and a wide selection of tunes. It starts at absolute beginner level, and takes students up to about Grade 2.
