Toronto Flute School

One of the best things a student can do which doesn't involve playing their instrument (in addition to listening, of course!) is to attend concerts (symphony, chamber music, solo recitals) and other musical performances like opera, ballet, musicals, anything with live music no matter what the genre. There is always something to learn.

Flute Facts

Adult Lessons

I am always happy to teach adult students at the Toronto Flute School. Some come to me as beginners, some have played before in school and want to resume, others are pre-professionals. All are welcome!

Adult students often have specific goals, such as wanting to join a community ensemble, improve existing or recover previously existing skills, or simply become proficient enough to play for pleasure.

They also have different circumstances from school-age students: a job, family, etc. All of this is taken into consideration when homework is assigned. The student and I work together to figure out a reasonable workload that will still promote progress.

The one question I am asked by adult students and occasionally parents of younger students which I can't answer is this: “How long will it take me to learn how to play the flute?” Everything depends on the amount of time you have at your disposal, and how much you are able to commit to practising. It's that simple!
