    Patience and being understanding are probably my best qualities for being a teacher. That's not just what I think but a number of my pupils and pupils' parents have told me so. A sense of humour in the right situations can also be productive. Lots of people are good musicians but not all of them have the patience to teach people who struggle with the subject. I know from personal experience from when I was a child that the more someone shouts at a person who is trying hard but finding something difficult, the harder it becomes for that person to do well. That doesn't meant that I will be too soft with anyone messing about but am understanding towards those who are keen but not naturaly gifted in music.

  • Practising the Piccolo Editor's Pick

    Bronte Hudnott Flute Teacher (South West London) Picture Like many flautists, when I was learning flute as a school student the occasion would sometimes arise where I would be called on to play the piccolo, both in the school's wind bands and orchestra. Such an event would usually instill me with immense fear, which is of course not an ideal feeling...
  • The importance of Scales and Studies.

    Kristan Swain Flute Teacher (North West London) Picture Playing the flute, in the grand scheme of things, is really not the greatest challenge in the world. By this I mean, learning to play the flute is relatively easy - in comparison to its woodwind counterparts, and other members of the string family. It is relatively simple to 'get up and running'...

 

  • Learning an instrument: a musical journey

    Rebecca Carson Flute Teacher (North West London) Picture I believe that music is within us all and we are all capable of performing and sharing it,  if we are willing to put in time and effort. Beyond learning to play our instrument we also learn about commitment, patience and discipline which are useful tools in all aspects of life.   In music we...
  • Nightmare Passage?

    Ceri Wills Flute Teacher (Leicester) Picture As flute players, we are often faced with passages of music with an impossible looking amount of notes, or dozens of scales to prepare for examinations. Beginning practice of these passages (or scales) can be daunting. While endless repetition has some benefits, progress can be slow and practice...
  • Flute Playing, Breathing and Posture.

    Cara Garton Flute Teacher (East London) Picture In my experiences as a student and also as a teacher, attention to breathing and posture should be at the core of everything. It is my belief that having a natural posture and being aware of what the body is doing at all times is essential to developing a solid technique, and helps with the...
