How do the lessons work?

During the first lesson, tutor and pupil spend time getting to know one another.  The tutor will decide on the most appropriate material and music books for your child.

How do I know which music books to buy?

Our tutors possess an excellent knowledge of the most appropriate publications and books, required for each individual child.  Any new material and music books will be supplied to you in lessons.  Tutors will confirm purchase of books with parents, the cost of which will be included in the next invoice. 

How will I know how my child’s music lessons are progressing?

 Our tutors conduct an open door policy as far as emailing is concerned.  If you have any questions regarding tuition and/or your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to email your tutor.  Tutors will also provide feedback in the practice diaries and practice points for parents as well as verbal feedback for those pupils who have lessons at home.  Parents are encouraged to comment on home practice in the practice diary on a regular basis.

Don’t have a flute? 

Don’t worry! We can recommend the best places to hire instruments.  Some parents prefer to do this initially until they are sure that their child is ready to commit fully to the instrument. At this point, we can offer help in choosing your first flute.
