My flute studio is based around setting a strong foundation to achieve the student's goals. Each flute lesson is tailored to the individual students needs and adjusted as they progress. Whether you are picking up the instrument for the first time, are a student auditioning for all-county orchestra, or just want to improve your playing, I can help you achieve your ideal musical self! For beginner students, lessons will focus on tone production, breath support, reading skills, rhythm, and technical development to form a strong base for continued development. Intermediate students will continue developing basic technical skills and music theory knowledge. They will begin applying their knowledge to standard repertoire. By focusing on musical context, students will begin to learn the more advanced concepts surrounding interpretation. Advanced students will continue to refine these concepts and artistry. Lessons will focus on applying and interpreting the musicality of advanced repertoire from the common practice as well as preparing for auditions and advanced performances. All students will work on achieving their individual goals whether they are playing for pleasure or working towards auditions. I am happy to work with whatever method book the student is comfortable with but I will recommend materials based on the student's level. Some of my preferred books are the Blocki Flute Method books, the Flute 101 books, and Trevor Wye's series of books however, I am comfortable working with band books or any other material you may have. If you would like to begin playing flute and have not yet purchased one, I do have some recommendations on what to look for. Instruments to look for are carried at any reputable store. Some of these brands are Yamaha, Jupiter, Gemeinhardt, Armstrong, Pearl, Trevor James, Artley, and many others. While these are costly if purchased new, it is fairly easy to find a very good deal at a similar price if you do a little searching. Additionally, many of these brands make modified, smaller instruments for young children or people with disabilities. For very young children, starting on a fife may be something to consider. If you are unsure what to purchase, please send me a message and I will help you with the purchasing process or even recommend some instruments that are for sale online. I am an experienced music teacher and musician. I have been playing flute since 2009 and teaching for nearly as long. Lessons are catered to each individual's needs and goals. Send me a message to see if I am a good fit for you!

A Masterful Flute Player is already inside of you; get in touch with yourself and your creative spirit ! With over 30 years of experience and 12,000+ fun-filled flute lessons taught, don’t miss the wonderful opportunity to achieve your dreams! My students rehearse with me for an average of 8 years, and flute beginners quickly achieve musical and technical artistry ! Over the years of my 3-decade career in Classical Music, I have crafted a teaching style that minimizes practice time, maximizes progress, and allows my students, ages 7 through adult, to have fun while practicing. Here is what I do in the first lesson: - Assess the student’s level for interest and progress - Understand the student’s goals - Design a custom path of study for lasting achievement By getting in touch with yourself and your Creative Spirit, the sky will be your limit. We will develop your technical style in such a way that your technique becomes effortless, uniquely yours, and then your musicality will have the tools to blossom. There are three (3) distinct levels of self-mastery to Flute Technique and several areas of specific skills within each level. I explore each level separately and then combine them into one truly integrated technique. My online teaching methods and techniques have reached students in over 30 states in the U.S. as well as Canada, England, Australia, Belgium, Italy, France, Spain, South Korea, The Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Germany and South Africa. “The sculpture is already inside the rock; all you have to do is remove the excess stone”. – Michelangelo Success Stories: -Many students have won $5,000/year in scholarship money for 4-year colleges (even while majoring in fields such as medicine, engineering, architecture, and the sciences). -A recent student (taught between the ages of 7 – 17) submitted an audition recording to Brandeis University and was awarded the prestigious Leonard Bernstein Fellowship amounting in $20,000/year for 4 years. -A former high school student went on to music college to major in music therapy with hospice patients. She loved the field so much that she is going back to graduate school for a degree in Social Work. -Several students have achieved a perfect score in the level-6 category of the NYSSMA competition and went on to perform in the ALL-STATE WIND ENSEMBLE and ORCHESTRA (who select the top youth performers in the state).

Gordon L. began playing music at a very early age but didn't begin to learn the saxophone until he was in fifth grade. Gordon's interest in music grew when he began to work sound systems for bluegrass bands and eventually he started to experiment more with music. Soon after he would pick up guitar which would spark his interest in further pursuing his playing of music. After he bought a guitar, Gordon would practice relentlessly, sometimes for as long as 12 hours a day. This passion for music allowed Gordon to go to a summer rock band camp in San Diego where he learned everything you need to know about touring, playing in a band, making a music video etc. When Gordon reached his senior year of high school he attended Perpich Center of the Performing arts in Golden Valley, Minnesota. While he was learned he took classes in ear training and music theory. He also took a Taiko drum class while he was at Perpich. Along with learning new musical concepts, Gordon also learned how the music business works which got him more interested in marketing the bands he performed in. Gordon also was able to take guitar lessons at Macphail in Minneapolis under the apprenticeship of James Allen. Gordon went on to Mesabi Range Community College where he received his Associates Degree. While there he played saxophone in the Community Band and guitar in bands he started himself. Gordon also took a banjo class, piano class and a music history class at Mesabi Range Community College. His main focus in the past years has been working with bands doing studio work, mini tours and CD production/marketing for those groups. After Community College, Gordon went to Evangel University in Missouri where he continued to study Guitar and Saxophone while picking up more woodwind and string instruments. Gordon took private guitar lessons and attended a Guitar Master Class at this college. He also attended Missouri State University where he learned about theory and composition. He also played Saxophone in the jazz band. While he attended school in Missouri he relentlessly continued to play in multiple groups live and recorded a Ska/Reggae CD (guitar and saxophone tracks) with the band Bringers of the Dawn. Gordon can fluently play and teach Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Clarinet, and Saxophone. Gordon is also willing to teach harmonica and banjo to those interested in learning. Gordon also has knowledge of several other cultural instruments with a background in piano lessons from high school and college. He got superior and excellent ratings at musical competitions for voice and saxophone in high school where he performed songs such as the Hungarian Dance #5 and Beautiful Dreamer. Gordon loves all genres of music and enjoys learning every style he can in order to improve his musical instruction. For the moment Gordon is pursuing songwriting particularly in the field of cultural music. Focusing on the students immediate musical needs, Gordon is able to encourage students to set goals in order to efficiently practice, concentrate and focus during the lesson time. Gordon is very patient with every student so that they refrain from becoming frustrated, overwhelmed or intimidated. Realizing the importance of music, Gordon makes sure that every student leaves each lesson having learned something new.

Flute Lessons

The flute is an instrument heard in diverse types of music, from classical pieces to modern jazz, and is played around the world in various cultures. It’s from a family of instruments in the woodwind category, yet it’s unlike any other. The flute is a reedless instrument, producing sound through a flow of air that moves through an opening.

In addition, the flute is one of the earliest known instruments, dating back to paleolithic times in present-day Germany. Instruments in this family include the Western concert flute, the piccolo, and the fife.

Is flute easy to learn?

Because of its relatively simple design, it’s fairly easy to get started with playing basic notes and songs on the flute. Like with all instruments, though, attaining mastery of the instrument will take many years of hard work and dedication. Experienced flute teachers help new students and seasoned flute players learn new techniques, mastering complex music compositions while also gaining an understanding of music theory. It’s not easy, but learning to play the flute well is a satisfying endeavor.

Can I teach myself to play the flute?

You can definitely start learning the flute by teaching yourself. It’s possible to learn the basic fingerings, a few songs, and get a decent tone all on your own. Watching a few online tutorials and videos will also help you learn new techniques and try new songs. Eventually, though, it gets harder and harder to level up without access to great flute teachers. Signing up for the best online flute lessons and in-person coaching will help you learn faster, remedy bad habits, and start playing better than you’ve ever dreamed of. TakeLessons is a great place to find flute lessons.
