Intro To Flute

About Intro To Flute

Interested in playing the flute but don't know where to start? In this 55 minute class, you will learn what to consider when shopping for a flute, what accessories you will need, what tools and resources you can use to get started learning the instrument, and what are some exercises you can do to start making a sound and playing your first notes (including some preparation exercises you can do even if you don't have an instrument yet!). If you have a flute, bring it, but if not, you will both know how and want to get one by the end of class!

Class Goals

  • - Understand where and how to obtain a flute and know what kind to get
  • - Be able to properly assemble and disassemble and care for the flute
  • - Learn how to form a correct lip shape (embouchure) and make your first sound!
  • - Learn basic hand position and your first notes!

Class: Flute with Erika Andres

Erika Andres flute Go class is great fun. Since this is a group class, it is also a community. I get to hear other students’ ideas and questions. We all encourage and support each other. Ms. Erika’s knowledge is amazing. She has detailed knowledge and experience with all flute topics. The most inspiring thing about Ms. Erika is that she is always positive, encouraging and makes each class fun. If you want to learn more about all flute topics and improve your playing skill, this is the class. After a long week, when Saturday arrives, I need a break! I need to have fun! I need to hang out with a fun group of people! I can guarantee this will be the most fun you have ever had playing flute! If you think I am exaggerating, try a class. You will thank me.
