Group Flute Lessons - Masterclasses

Email for rates

These are group classes (called masterclasses) where students play individually for a teacher in front of other students. They help flutists learn in a different way than in private lessons. Listening to other players is useful because you can learn what to do and not to do from others, it allows you to see how others perform, and it is a good opportunity to perform in a low-key, relaxed setting. Group flute lessons are best in conjunction with private flute lessons, not on their own. ~ Group Lessons are 60 minutes long, once a week.
