Learning flute requires very specific instruction from someone who knows flute technique. Flute embouchure (the shape of the lips) is very different from all other instruments. Also with hand position, posture and breathing it is very important to learn these things correctly from the beginning. Along with these things, note reading and general theory concepts are taught in a very fun way. The best part of learning flute is all the amazing songs available for flute in many different styles: jazz, classical, Latin, Irish, folk....to name a few!Show More Show Less

Teaches students aged 7+
Lisa N. has 13 years experience teaching in her home studio and in Queensland schools. She has taught all ages (from 6 to 60) and all levels (from beginner to AMEB and Trinity grade 8). Lisa’s students have an excellent record of results with exams, eisteddfods and performances.
Lisa was the Flute Tutor at Good Shepherd Lutheran College, Noosa for 9 years, and Instrumental Tutor at St Andrew’s Anglican College, Peregian for 4 years. Lisa also enjoys her orchestral performing and was Principal Flute and Piccolo of the Noosa Orchestra for 6 years. She now performs with Orchestra Concertino in North Brisbane (Flute & Piccolo) and Classic Clarinets of Brisbane.
Lisa tailors her lessons to suit each individual. For very young students, she uses games and activities to enhance learning. For students involved in ensembles, solo performing and exams, there is an emphasis on developing confident performance. For adults who want to learn just for personal enjoyment, there is flexibility of styles and Lisa encourages self-directed learning.
All students are encouraged to play in Lisa's student recitals which are held twice yearly. These are a very friendly and low key way for students to start performing for others. As they advance, they play with piano accompaniment and in a small ensemble made up of of Lisa's students.
