The flute is a family of musical instruments in the woodwind group. Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening. The flute is quite simply a beautiful sounding instrument and perfect for a young beginner. There is so much stunning repertoire too!
SCMT teaches flute to children aged 6 years and up. All of our teachers are trained in the ABRSM and Trinity syllabus’s, which are very popular with almost all of our young woodwind players. We also offer ABRSM Music Medals exams (small group/ensemble assessment).
Flute is taught either 1 on 1 or small group setting, with children grouped according to their standard of play rather than their age. We also have numerous contacts locally within orchestras, opening up the social side of learning. Our concerts offer great opportunities for young Fluatists to perform for friends and family too!
‘Anna started learning the flute with Kate when she turned seven. We’ve found that with the right guidance and exciting music there has never been a struggle to engage her. She found the breathing fairly easy to master too and loves playing in the school orchestra. We’re hoping for her to take her Grade 2 (ABRSM) in November and feel that her enthusiasm continually grows as the months pass.’ Jenny, parent, Oxford.
