In my studio, I believe that my role is to steer students toward a deeper understanding of themselves, their instrument, and their relationship to music. I tailor my teaching to the needs of my individual students, who currently range from age 7 to adult, often adding improvisation and extended techniques to increase my students€™ awareness of the potential of the flute as a channel for one€™s creativity.

About Roberta

Flutist, Roberta M., is equally at home playing classical and new music. I Care If You Listen has extolled her “lush, full tones… even among the best professionals, not many flute players sound so compelling in a lower register.” Praising her “extreme adventurousness,” New York Concert Rev

Roberta was absolutely fantastic with my 7-year-old daughter who decided one day she wanted to learn to play the flute. Keeping a 7-year-old engaged over zoom for a half hour is no small task, but Roberta is enthusiastic, fun, encouraging, and a little silly at just the right moments. She's wonderful and we highly recommend her!

Sorcha takes the time to completely understand what you want out of the lessons and how you learn best, then she does a fantastic job of tailoring each practice session to your needs. I love how she observes when you play and catches subtle points to help you improve your performance and get more out of your practice; she really wants to help you learn and enjoy!
She also has great knowledge of various topics in music that you can tap into.

I believe that the most important aspect of learning is a positive and comfortable environment that encourages and facilitates growth! My studio ranges from ages 9 to adult and from beginner to advanced.

Through my own studies I have experienced many different teaching styles and philosophies, and have developed my own method to help my students progress quickly and efficiently.

Every lesson will begin with a discussion about the students practicing so that we can celebrate growth and work together through challenges.

Students will be asked to study technical and tone exercises as well as repertoire that will help them progress in the necessary areas. I will help my students choose pieces that are appropriate and enjoyable.

If a student would like to study a popular song then I will gladly write my own arrangement for them. We can also learn to play by ear and improvise.

For my online students I will record solos, duets, and piano parts to pieces that we cannot play ...

I highly recommend Leanna. My nine-year-old daughter has been taking her online flute lessons since the last summer and she looks forward to the class every week. I appreciate that Leanna prepares music pieces or provides us with her own flute/piano recordings so my daughter can practice with them. Communication with Leanna have also been very efficient and pleasant. She is professional, patient, and caring; simply the best!

Playing the flute has given me so much joy, and it is my dream to pass that joy along to others. Whether you're just starting out, picking the flute up after a long time away, or looking to hone your skills, I can help you reach your flute goals! In all my lessons, beginner to advanced, students learn how to make beautiful music, sight read, understand basic music theory, and practice safely. We work out of the Rubank method book, but I also utilize handwritten exercises and songs. I also always encourage my students to bring music they want to learn. I've covered everything from classical and jazz music to pop songs and show tunes!

Absolute Beginners: In our very first lesson, students learn the parts of the flute and how to make a sound. We learn about flute care, and how to correctly hold the flute. Basic music theory is introduced at this level, once the student can consistently make a sound with the headjoint. Securing the basics at this level is very important, but with games ...

Learning to play the flute allows you to tap into your creative side. You’ll learn to perform moving pieces of music that can help you express your emotions. In addition to the fun of learning your favorite songs and challenging yourself with more complex techniques, studying this instrument can have many positive effects on your mind and body, too.

For instance, children that learn to play musical instruments often have better focus and perform better academically than those who do not. It can also boost their self-confidence and encourage socialization.

But it’s not just kids who can benefit from playing the flute—adults can, too. Studies have shown that playing an instrument can help keep your mind sharp, improve your cognitive abilities, and enhance your memory. It’s also a great way to improve your patience and discipline. It’s no wonder so many children and adults are interested in taking flute lessons!

Topics Covered When You Learn to Play Flute

Every student is different. Each one learns at their own pace and has their own preferred learning style. They also have unique interests, varied backgrounds, and different skill sets. Because of this, it doesn’t make sense to teach every student the exact same way.

That’s why our flute tutors offer private lessons for all their students. During one-on-one instruction, they assess their students’ skills, ask about their goals and interests, and build a customized lesson plan to accommodate their needs. Each student receives their flute teacher’s undivided attention, so they can go at their own speed, ask all their questions, and focus on what interests them most. Whether you’re taking advanced classes or flute lessons for beginners, your flute tutor will be 100% dedicated to your success.

Sample Lesson Topics for Flute Lessons for Beginners

Flute lessons for beginners typically cover:

  • Learning notes and scales
  • Breathing and posture techniques
  • Tonguing and articulation
  • Tone and rhythm
  • Introduction to music theory
  • Basic song playing

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Flute Players

Intermediate flute lessons topics that may include:

  • Improving fingering speed and dexterity
  • Learning alternate fingerings
  • Advanced playing patterns
  • The cycle of fifths
  • 2 5 1 progressions

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Flute Lessons

Some topics may include:

  • Comprehensive tone development
  • Technique enhancement skills
  • Solo repertoire
  • Etudes

Finding Flute Classes Near You

Now that you’ve decided you want to become a flutist, it’s time to choose what kind of lessons you want to sign up for.

Here at TakeLessons, we offer two options to ensure learning is as convenient and hassle-free as can be. If you’re interested in taking in-person classes, we can help you find a flute teacher near you who can meet with you in a classroom setting.

All you need is an internet connection and access to a computer, tablet, laptop, or smartphone to sign on and meet with your instructor over the web.
