Our Flute Lessons

For many students that start to learn the flute, they begin by learning to create a sound from the instrument. This may be tricky for some at first, but our teachers will guide you through the process and show you how to work on it at home.

Once you are able to create a sound, you will embark on a journey to learning songs and pieces and to continually refine and improve your technique. Our flute lessons will help you to master tone production, tone clarity and good breath control. Many of our students may go on to prepare for music examinations on the flute.

One of the great benefits to learning the flute is it can be a great instrument to play in school bands, ensembles and orchestra. This is a much enjoyed experience as you are able to collaborate and perform with other students and musicians.

About the Flute

The flute is one of the oldest woodwind instruments, having a rich history of hundreds of years. Its small size makes it compact to take around, and is extremely versatile when it comes to music, being able to play a wide variety of genres from classical to jazz.

It plays beautifully as a solo instrument, and is a vital part to any ensemble or orchestra. Predominantly it is played a melodic instrument, but sounds just as excellent within harmonies.

Do I need a Flute to start lessons?

It’s great if you already have your own flute before starting flute lessons at the Cantabile School of Music. However if you’re just starting out and do not have an instrument yet, don’t worry. We can introduce you to some recommended places for you to purchase a flute. Some places also have a rental option if that suits you.


We offer Flute Lessons at both our Glen Waverley and Mount Waverley campuses.
