Welcome to West Coast Flute in Brighton, UK!
I love music and I’m guessing you probably do too! My students know that finding joy in music is what playing the flute is all about. Whether you are preparing for a graded ABRSM or Trinity examination, or simply learning the flute because of all the good things music does to us, my goal will always be to make sure music lights a spark inside. I look forward to joining you on your musical journey!
Lessons are affordable, fun AND your first 30-minute lesson is free!
If you’re considering taking lessons…
On this website you will find all the information you need to make the decision that’s right for you. On the About page you can take a glance at the teachers, universities, courses and experiences that have helped inspire me as a musician and teacher. The Flute Lessons page includes my teaching philosophy and lesson rates (I try to keep them as reasonable as possible!), and there’s a handy online enquiry form you can fill out on the Contact page.
My favourite is the Feature Flutist page where some of my students over the years have volunteered to tell you a bit about themselves and their thoughts on learning the flute. It’s a refreshing glance at the joy music can bring to musicians of all ages! More photos of my flutists in action can be found in the Gallery.
Why West Coast Flute?
You might be wondering why my web site is called West Coast Flute when Brighton is really on the South Coast of England. I founded West Coast Flute while I was living in my beautiful hometown of Victoria, which is on the West Coast of Canada. I’ve kept the name because, well, I’m still a West Coaster who plays the flute!
