For Beginner to Advanced: Age 5+  

The flute has a bright and clear tone and people often find the warmth of this instrument hypnotic. It can be found in an orchestra or a wind band, often playing a high melody soaring over the top of other instruments.


An appropriate age to start on the flute can be around age 5 on a short “junior” flute especially designed for small children.  

Children who have attended our Young Piano and Musicianship program may have a rhythmic, dexterous and musical advantage to start learning the flute at age 5. So if your child hasn’t attended this program, and you find that jumping straight into learning the flute feels sudden or too early for your young child, then we recommend a year or two of our YOUNG PIANO AND MUSICIANSHIP lessons or starting on the RECORDER first.  

Age 7+ can start on a regular sized instrument (depending on the size of the child)  


More experienced players may be keen to gain more confidence in their school band or might be working towards a higher level AMEB exam or an HSC performance.  

Flute students will learn how to make a beautiful sound, read with ease, and learn tricks and practice tools to develop and progress at their own pace.
