Katie Higgins Flute Teacher Newcastle NSW
What is a good age to start?
Students as young as four years old can start learning the flute.
Light instruments with a curved head joint are available for purchase or hire for this age group. The Suzuki method is best for beginners, as it relies on a 'Mother Tongue' approach to learning.
What do I need to start?
You will need an instrument and the time and patience to master a new skill.
I have quality flutes and curved headjoints for hire, contact me for details.
How do I buy a flute?
Purchasing a quality instrument will ensure that students, even beginners, don't struggle with an instrument that doesn't work properly or is of poor quality.
Flutes can last for many years with proper care, and be resold when the student graduates to an intermediate model.
