Katherine Rogers, Flute Teacher and Performer

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!

AUTUMN SPECIAL! This September, I’m offering beginner students under the age of 12 six action-packed 45-minute flute lessons for the price of six 30-minute lessons! I only have 2 spaces available, so email me today if you are interested! These lessons include active learning games to facilitate a successful, enjoyable introduction to the flute.

INTRODUCTION TO KINDERFLUTE! Mondays from 5:45-6:30pm, September 4th-October 9th, 2017 at Under the Bridge Music School, Brighton. £45 for the course. Instruments provided! Please see my Kinderflute page for more information 🙂

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. I really enjoyed leading Brighton’s first Kinderflute course this May and I look forward to offering the program on a weekly basis Autumn 2017. Keep posted for more free taster lessons coming up this June/July!
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.

Check out the Brighton Flute Blog for current happenings in my little world of music and the Resources page for a quick list of handy links for the Brighton flutist.

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!
