Flute Lessons

Flute Lessons in Victoria, Canada

Teaching Philosophy
My number one goal as a teacher is to help my students develop a love for music that will stay with them throughout their lives. All of my students are taught the importance of a healthy posture and dynamic breathing, both of which are vital to a luminous tone and solid technique. Lessons are always organized according to each individual’s unique aspirations and level of playing.

My unique approach to teaching also harnesses many of the learning skills and techniques I developed through my experience as a primary school Special Educational Needs Assistant and Teaching Assistant. Lessons incorporate a wide array of learning techniques and activities to help each student, young or mature, to develop their music in a fulfilling and creative way.

New!!! West Coast Flute now uses My Music Staff, online music class app that allows students and parents to get the most out of their musical journey. Lesson schedules, teacher notes, practising calendars, payments, music loans and event notices are just a few of the reasons why this online tool is incredibly helpful! Best of all, it is free for all my students to use. Students are sent their login information upon registration and sign in on the My Music Staff web page.

Two lesson options are available: Individual lessons taught from my home studio or Kinderflute classes (for those 4-8 years of age).

Individual Lesson Rates
30 minutes  $25
45 minutes  $37.50
60 minutes  $50

Kinderflute Classes
Especially designed for children up aged 4 to 8, Kinderflute classes are filled with energetic learning activities to teach rhythm, notation, breathing, piano skills and flute technique. Kinderflute is truly the best, most effective way to introduce children to the flute!

“Dear Kathy,
Thank you very much for teaching me flute. I really love flute and you are the best teacher in the world! I will never forget you… and the stuff that we played on our flutes in Canada as long as I live!! I will miss you a lot in Korea. I hope I’ll come back and see you.”
