Flute Playing (Recorder)
Level One Course

The course takes the student, step by step, through the process of developing skills, one hand at a time, gradually unifying the process so that both hands can play songs on the flute. We learn the simple techniques and songs in the course by heart and ear. We do not complicate this process with written music. The important first steps are to develop comfort and skills with the instrument itself. We do this by learning simple songs that are easily mastered with daily practice.
