How does it work…
Lessons for the flute are taught on a 1-1 basis with the idea of putting the individual’s learning first.
Its important in your early lessons to get the correct posture as well as learning about the flute and the music
Within a lesson you will learn the notes of the flute, how to read music, music theory and have fun!
How will I learn?
Having a 1-1 lesson means our tutor’s will discuss your very own goals and objectives. They will then work with you by setting practise goals throughout the week. You can see our flute tutors here
In our experience everyone learns at a different pace and style. This is why our lesson emphasis is on a one to one basis.
Will I have to take graded exams?
Examining boards we use for flute exams are Trinity College and ABRSM. All students have the opportunity to take graded exams, but its not compulsory
If a child is working towards an academic CV its important to know that Grade 6 is equivalent to a GCSE, Grade 8 is equivalent to an A Level. Both carry UCAS points.
Will I get the opportunity to perform?
We offer the opportunity to perform in End of Term concerts which are in a recital format.
If you really want to Rock out you could join a band and be part of The Derosa Sessions.
There are many other opportunities such as joining an Orchestra, playing in Church or even a folk group in your local area.
What’s the cost?
