Beginners/Intermediate Flute Lessons (Cantonese/English)

For complete beginners, the things I'll teach you the following in chronological order:
- basics of the sounding of the flute, assemble/disassemble the flute
- tone development: posture, embouchure, breathing, articulation
- basic rhythmic training
- fingerings for simple notes e.g. "G", "A", "B"
- other notes ("F", "Bb"; "E", "D", "C")
- understanding the balance
- sightreading simple solo, duet pieces
- more advanced notes
- pitch (sharp/flat)
- tone color
- more advanced pieces
- musical ornaments

My teaching style is goal-oriented. Tone color is the most important skill to master in my opinion.
I can help you with the ABRSM grades you want to achieve!

About Me

I have a background in MSci Pharmacology with Professional Placement Year with First-Class Honours from KCL, worked at the University of Oxford. I am native Cantonese, proficient in Mandarin and English (~native) - both spoken and written.

Currently teaching the piano, the flute, and phonics in my spare time:) I enjoy interacting with people from various backgrounds. I have a passion for music and I am keen to transfer my musical skills, techniques, and understanding to my students. More importantly, I really enjoy guiding and empowering my students in their pursuits with a positive learning attitude, in so doing also boost their confidence.

I completed the Music Theory Grade 5 exam at age 10. Attained ABRSM Grade 8 for the piano and double bass at ages 11 and 15. Attained LTCL for flute at age 14. I played in both woodwind and strings orchestras, also participated in various local and overseas competitions throughout my school years in HK.

In terms of work experience, I have worked in various cities, London, Oxford, Shanghai, Hong Kong (hometown) using various languages. Naturally, I have an upbeat, cheerful, enthusiastic personality. Having worked at various startups, I also encourage an empowering and proactive leadership/teaching style. I am flexible, comfortable, and versatile. My teaching will be dependent on the student's needs -- I believe in systematic teaching but malleability is also important depending on the student's potential and character.

Learning how to play the piano is not only musically enriching as it is one of the easier instruments to pick up if you are new to music, giving you a solid base of musical understanding, but also will boost your confidence in general being able to recognise pitches with multiple voicings as we work up the grades. I adopt a goal-oriented teaching style: - we will work through ABRSM grades -- breaking down the work needed to master all the way from scales to exam pieces to aural to sight reading.
Nailing pronunciation is important in learning a language. I am going to teach you English phonics, including accurate word pronunciation + breakdown, and how to read phonetic symbols in International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). My classes are chill and casual - developing a passive income source. Happy to schedule a call to brief you what you'll learn!
Cantonese is the spoken Chinese language used in Hong Kong and several provinces in China. It is not an easy language but it is very useful especially for those of you who are looking to further your career or development in Hong Kong, a glamorous international city. Born and bred in Hong Kong, I am native in this language and I will be able to teach my beginner students basic words, strokes if needs be, the 9 tonalities, and the pronunciation of every new word. We'll start with words, and then vocabularies, and further, grammar, sentence structure to formulate simple sentences. My teaching style is casual. I believe that practicing is the key to perfecting any skills not least languages, and I am passionate about having intriguing conversations with people from a variety of diverse backgrounds.

Violin, Flute and Solfeggio lessons
VIOLIN: My lessons cover several aspects necessary for good violin playing and free musical expression: healthy body posture, stable technique, attentive listening, musicality, personal development. It is from these notions that the quality of sound, intonation, bowing technique, technical skill, expression, and many others arise. I also give importance to well-being, self-confidence, or other abilities that the student would like to acquire. TRANSVERSE FLUTE: My lessons cover several aspects necessary for good playing of the transverse flute and free musical expression: healthy body posture, stable technique, attentive listening, musicality, personal development. It is from these notions that the quality of sound, digital and respiratory technique, intonation, expression, and many others arise. I also give importance to well-being, self-confidence, or other abilities that the student would like to acquire. SOLFÈGE: My courses cover several aspects necessary for the successful learning of music theory: strategies for recognizing intervals, chords and rhythms and their executions, singing, musical indications, exercises, attentive listening, musicality. These aspects are essential to instrumental practice, because they first allow you to correctly read a score, then analyze and interpret it.

TURKISH REED/WOOD FLUTE, NEY, NAY LESSONS FOR ALL LOVERS
Turkish reed flute is an essential instrument of Turkish Classcial Music. It has a deep and dense culture dating from 13. century around. If you want to learn about how to perform it you first need a teacher educated by masters on this field. As of many teachers you can find online but you make sure that not every tutor meets with traditional style. Solfege and method are inseperable parts of the lessons. So for beginners and intermediate students must follow a compotent tutor to learn about the way of classic form.

Laura
Flute and Music Theory tuition for students of all levels
I have played the flute for more than 20 years, and have been teaching since 2011. I offer flute lessons to children aged 8 and up, and adults at all levels from beginners to post Grade 8. I also teach recorder to younger beginners- I find this is a good stepping stone for younger children as it's more comfortable for smaller beginners to hold, and easier to make a sound on. Learn to pass exams or just for fun- many of my students achieve highly in ABRSM and Trinity grades, but some prefer not to take exams and this is fine too. Whatever your level, one to one tuition means that I can tailor my teaching to your needs as a flute player, and my teaching takes into account the reasons you learn an instrument, encompassing a wide variety of repertoire. I also teach music theory- lots of students come to me to help prepare for Grade 5 theory, and I also teach higher theory grades.

Flute Lessons, music theory and study techniques. All levels and motivations are very welcome.
Welcome! These flute lessons are for everyone who loves this amazing instrument! It doesn't matter your level or your motivations! Here you will learn about all the technical aspects of the flute such as breathing-blowing, tonguing, articulation, flexibility, fingering... But I think it is also important that you can have other skills which, in my opinion, are completely necessary for a good musician. For example, we will work on your sight reading, we will analyze the pieces played so that you understand the harmony and the structure... we will work on musicality and style so that you can develop your own musical spirit. We will also work on study techniques so that you can learn the abilities that will make you completely independent. All the music styles are very welcome in this class so don’t hesitate to ask me and I will prepare an arrangement of the songs you love! If you have any doubt please contact me, Let’s go!

Roser
Flute lessons (Dwarsfluit lessen) and Music theory lessons for all levels
Hello! I’m Roser, a flutist and piccolist currently living in Groningen. I graduated from my bachelor on 2023 in Conservatori Superior de Música “Mestre Tàrrega” in Castelló, Spain. In 2023 I moved to Groningen to start my master studies at Prince Claus Conservatorium. During my bachelor in Spain I worked as a flute and music theory teacher in three elementary music schools and I have complemented my experience with courses in pedagogical strategies. The lessons will be fully adapted to each student and their musical interests or goals. For me it is very important that you can learn all the technical aspects of the flute but also that you can enjoy and express yourself playing the music you like the most.
