As a parent, it is probably a dream you have for your kid to learn several musical instruments. Of these common instruments you can teach your kid, a flute can be one of those basic and easiest ones to play.
The flute is a uniquely straight and small instrument and a member of the woodwind family, and one of its unique characteristics is the trajectory at which it is played. The student must blow down yet almost across the opening to make quality sound, and this technique will take a bit of time at first to master to become a virtuoso. Beginning flutists may be interested to know that playing this instrument is much like singing in that the importance of breathing and proper posture are essential to its success. This is described in great detail in the book “Body Mapping for Flutists” by Lea pearson.
Learning the flute is not a really hard task but if, as a parent, you are not skilled in playing the flute, your next resort would be enrolling your child in flute virtuoso classes. Anyway, I know what you are thinking. Flute virtuoso classes—doesn’t that sound too costly? The truth is that such classes are not as expensive as they may sound or seem. You can actually find a lot of flute classes wherein you can have your kid enrolled in. Finding one may be a challenge, especially if your place is not that diverse in terms of music and instrument-related schools, but it is not impossible.
The first thing you need to do is to visit the nearby schools and universities. These schools definitely have their music department and it wouldn’t be hard to ask them for a contact person who conducts flute virtuoso classes, let alone find among the faculty a member who conducts the same. Otherwise, it would also be helpful to visit music schools or conservatories as normally, they do conduct flute virtuoso classes.
In choosing the correct flute virtuoso classes for your kid, it is very important to identify the normal age groups that are enrolled in such classes. Definitely, your kid wouldn’t enjoy this experience as much if he or she is placed in a class full of adults or teenagers who he or she couldn’t relate with. Private tutors may also be a choice in case flute virtuoso classes are not advisable for your kid’s age.
Finding flute virtuoso classes has also been made possible with the use of online advertising and online classified ads. This is an easier and more convenient way of finding affordable flute classes.
