My skill level is…


I’m just starting out.

I want to make sure I start learning with the correct technique.

  • Proper instrument assembly and care.
  • Producing your first tone.
  • How to hold your instrument.
  • Your first five note and finger positions.
  • Learning some simple tunes.
  • Reading music.


I have been playing for a while, or I am re-learning from a few years absent.

  • Reaching the next level with my playing.
  • Choosing my repertoire.
  • Getting out of that rut.
  • Dynamics.
  • Articulation.
  • High Notes.
  • Speed.
  • Exam preparation.
  • Improvising skills.
  • Understanding Chords.
  • Strategies to overcome nerves and anxiety.


I can play but I would like some objective instructions, from a professional, as to how to reach my next level.

  • Preparing for exams.
  • Preparing for University auditions.
  • Preparing for a career in music.
  • What it takes to go professional.
  • Tips on multi-instrument playing.
  • Understanding Jazz chord progressions.
  • Composition.
  • Transcriptions.


I would like to be able improvise and jam with my friends.

I’m looking for a method to study improvisation. I need help with understanding what the chords mean and what scales to use. I would like to develop playing by ear rather than reading music.

  • Learn to improvise
  • Memorising tunes
  • Scales and chords
  • Understanding harmony
  • Transcribing
  • Playing by ear



Yes, the main challenge in learning the flute is producing the tone with your embouchure (lip). That is why it is so important to get a student in front of a teacher A.S.A.P. Once you can control your embouchure the fingerings are relatively easy.

I like to think in terms of hours played.

  • 2 hours – you will get a tone and learn your first 5 notes.
  • 10 hours – you are learning some simple tunes and getting through the first pages of your book.
  • 20 hours – sounding better, getting faster, reaching higher and lower, jamming with friends.
  • 50 hours – intermediate level.
  • 100+ hours – you will be able to play in ensembles or bands. You will be playing the music you love and music is part of your life.

Avoid the really cheap flute. If you buy from a retail store you should be in safe hands. Around $800 AUS will get you a decent beginners instrument. You can buy a used instrument but you should ask a flute player to try it out first. If you buy online make sure they have a phone number you can call and a system for returns and repairs.
