06

Is learning flute easy?

Studying music is a lot like learning to read and speak a new language. The first years of learning sound production, fingerings, and music notation take time and dedication. When partnering with a teacher, though, the process is quite fun! Once the basics are solid, students dive into musical interpretation, ensemble collaboration, building technique, and developing their personal artistic voice. This process lasts a lifetime and only gets better the longer you study. It is not easy, but it is absolutely worth the effort.
