We now offer Suzuki Flute lessons at Silver Music!
We are excited to have flutist, Zara Lawler, join our faculty this September 2018, teaching private lessons, flute group class, and Flute Readiness for young beginners.
FLUTE FAQ’s with Zara:
Do young children have enough lung power to play the flute?
Yes! It takes the same kind of lung power that children use when they run around outside screaming their heads off.
Do young children play real flutes?
Yes, there are specially designed flutes that curve back on themselves,
making them short enough for small people to play comfortably. They are
real flutes that play the same pitches as professional flutes, with a few
modifications to make them lighter and easier for small hands to hold.
However, most young beginners will start on a “faux flute,” for a lesson or
two: this is a pvc mock-up of a real flute, on which the young beginner can
learn the basics of how to hold the flute, where to put their fingers, and
how to stand while playing. Silver Music can help guide you to find an appropriate instrument to begin lessons.
Can young children play real music?
Yes, again! The Suzuki method starts with tunes most children know
already, including Mary Had a Little Lamb and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
Once children gain some basic proficiency on the instrument, they move
on to simple pieces by composers such as Bach, Handel and Schubert.
