About the lessons
"Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what colour we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith music proves."
- John Denver -

Lessons are taught by the best teachers in London who are not only passionate about teaching, but have a demonstrable level of student success and enjoyment, 100% student pass rates, and are also some of the very best professional musicians, which provides them with a wealth of performance experience to offer. You are therefore assured first class tuition.
Lessons are available both face-to-face in the comfort of your own home, or online!
It is CRUCIAL that you find the best possible teacher for you or your child, and don't just go to the teacher who responded to you first, or offered the cheapest fees. Not all teachers teach the same and not all students/teachers clique. We will ensure you are matched with the best teacher for your needs and also your personality!
In addition to flute tuition, lessons are available for music theory grade and diploma examinations. All students have achieved a 100% pass rate in their examinations to date, with the vast majority of students passing with Distinction, including at ABRSM grade 8 (the highest grade in the UK graded music system).
Students wishing to take flute and/or theory examinations are normally entered for examinations held by the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) examination board, unless a student should specifically request to be entered for an exam held by a different exam board, such as Trinity exams - Which may be a better choice for some students. We also have experienced accompanists available to provide piano accompaniment for those students who choose to take flute exams or perform in school concerts, etc.
Lessons will be held in the comfort of the student's own home (subject to availability and location). The normal catchment area is Greater London and the South-East. However, lessons may be possible further a field by arrangement, or online.
These days, the best music tuition is generally reserved for the "elite", but London Flute Tuition believes music should be accessible to everyone. Every music student is special! Therefore, top quality tuition from the best teachers who are able to travel to your home at such an excellent price, is extremely rare to find during such difficult economic times! As a result, places for tuition are very limited, so please keep trying if there are no places available during your first application.
Who the lessons are for:
Lessons are available for both children AND adults, of ALL ages and ALL standards from beginner to professional!
All teachers hold a clean and up-to-date enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate (formally called a CRB check), and are available upon request for your peace of mind.
What you will learn:
The strengths and weaknesses of the individual will be identified, and a programme will be tailor-made for the student to work on with their teacher, based upon the particular strengths and weaknesses identified by the teacher, so that students are able to flourish to their full potential with diligent practice. Every student is unique, and needs a programme that works specifically for them.
It is of utmost importance to consider each student as an individual, and to really consider what each particular student's goals might be. Not all students desire to become professional flautists, whilst others do. Many simply love music, and just want to play for enjoyment, and it is important to nurture those students who don't aspire to become professional, but do have a real love of music - because those people are just as important to music as those who desire to play professionally! After all, musicians do need an audience, and the more supportive the audience is both artistically and musically, the better for the entire musical community.
Our teachers are caring, enthusiastic, patient, encouraging, and care fervently about individual musical needs and requirements of every one of their students, whether they are learning with the intent of becoming a professional musician, or whether they are just learning the flute purely for fun! Our teachers have a keen attention for detail, and will adapt to each student’s needs accordingly, experienced in teaching both children and adults. Therefore, there is no set curriculum, and each student is taught on an individual basis according to their own personal strengths and weakness. The lessons will work on strengthening any weaknesses in the students' playing (we all have at least one!), in addition to developing a beautiful sound, solid technique, the ability to play musicality, aural skills, and general music appreciation.
At London Flute Tuition, we believe that almost anyone can learn to play flute, or any other instrument... Provided they PRACTICE enough! To quote Trevor Wye, "... it is a matter of time, patience, and intelligent work" ... on the part of both the teacher and the student. As a teacher, it is equally as important to inspire a genuine love of music, as it is to "produce" a fabulous new flautist!
Primarily, our teacher set out to make music ENJOYABLE! After all, what's the point of learning if you don’t enjoy playing?
Fees will depend upon location, travel time, experience, and demand. Please get in touch to enquire.
