Each online lesson takes place between one teacher and one student for either 30 or 60 minutes. While our flute sessions are all private, parents are more than welcome to attend their child’s lessons.
Students will begin with the fundamentals, such as breath control, how to hold the flute, real tones production, finger placement, etc. Intermediate students learn how to play clear sound, articulation, and an overview of tunes, pieces and songs taught. Intermediate and experienced students will develop proficiency in long tones, intervals, flute ornamentation and vibrato, along with learning significant repertoire. Our flute curriculum covers the following subjects:
Note reading and recognition
Counting, rhythm reading
Technique (scales, arpeggios, trills, dynamics)
Rudiments of theory
We work on the repertoire in these categories: etudes and studies, unaccompanied works, concertos, variations, etc., and short pieces. Students at all levels will be given a selection of repertoire from multiple eras of music to study and perfect.
