Flute Lessons The Hague
Hello! Welcome to my profile! My name is Inez Popko and I am a Polish professional concert flutist with many years of teaching experience in an international environment. Music plays an important role in my life since I was a child, and it still does!
Passionate about Music!
I am very involved during my lessons, ready to demonstrate, play along or improvise a flute accompaniment. The lesson typically starts with some warm-up and exercises suited to your needs and level. The core of the lesson is dedicated to music making and repertoire!
Beginners to Advanced - All Ages

Classical and World Music
My lessons may cover all kinds of classical music, world music or traditional Chinese music. The modern flute is a versatile instrument and fits in many music styles! Let's explore !
Beginners - What can you expect?
With special exercises you train your lips, develop a good breathing technique and learn to get a beautiful sound out of your flute. Gradually you can also play low and high tones in tune and we work on a nice legato and you learn different articulations. After some confidence has been gained, you will play short and enjoyable pieces. You will be learning some music theory along the way.
Intermediate - Advanced
As a professional flautist I can offer the highest level of flute tuition, development of technique and musicality, as well as a lot of enthusiasm for the instrument! Whether you are an intermediate flute player or advanced, I would love to help you develop further, working towards concert performances, exams, or just purely playing for fun.
We will pay attention to refining your interpretation of a given piece or orchestral part and focus on artistic qualities of your playing: expression, emotion.You will also learn some valuable tricks that make flutist's life easier: alternative fingerings, trill fingerings, extended techniques and so on.
I encourage my students to participate in local ABRSM or Trinity music exams to mark their progress and keep up the motivation to improve their playing. I also accompany my students at the piano which always adds to the enjoyment of music making.
Lesson at Your Home
I give the lessons at my home in Willemspark - The Hague, but If preferred I can come to you in The Hague, Voorschoten, Leidschendam, Wassenaar

Online Flute Lessons
Online lessons are available as well.
I am also happy to coach an ensemble, whether a duo or a bigger setting. Just like in a conversation, the ability to listen to the others while being involved in a discussion is essential. Ensemble playing is a wonderful opportunity to train this ability and more.
I have performed as a concert flutist in Europe, USA and China in halls such as Muziekgebouw and Paradiso in Amsterdam, Hangzhou Theatre, Jiaxing Grand Theatre and others. I play classical music and I also explore traditional Chinese repertoire for my concert tours in China. I have released a CD 'Music for Flute and Piano', but my recordings are also to be found on my YouTube channel.
I began learning violin at the age of seven, flute at ten and piano at twelve. At the age of sixteen I made my solo debut with Koszalin Philharmonic Orchestra, performing Flute Concerto in G Major by J. J. Quantz. A year later I orchestrated Fantasy by Georges Hue and performed it with KPO. I am a winner of many competitions such as 9. National Competition for Young Instrumentalists and 'Etiuda' Competition in Poland. Recently I became a finalist of Boulder International Chamber Music Competition 'Art of Duo' performing in a duo with pianist Nadejda Tzanova in USA. I graduated from the Royal Conservatories in The Hague and Brussels and I hold Masters of Music diplomas in flute and chamber music. I have been teaching flute at Virtuosi School of Music in The Hague, European School in Brussels and currently The British School in The Netherlands. I have also given a flute masterclass in Poland.
