Flute Lessons for Beginners

Congratulations on choosing the flute! To help you get started, we’ve created a video with a series of lessons that will guide you through the basics: how to make a sound on the flute, how to properly hold the flute, and more.

Along with the video, you’ll see a table of contents. In parenthesis are the times that those lessons take place in the video so you can learn at your own pace. Feel free to pause, rewind, and revisit these lessons until you are comfortable performing the things you have learned.
