Flute Lessons for Beginners to Advanced Intermediates
Do you have a love for classical music or have you been curious about the baroque style you've heard so often on the radio and in concerts? I give lessons on both the "modern" and baroque flutes. Sign up for a free taster lesson!
Utrecht based flute teacher Kristen Huebner: The flute is my passion and the music of the baroque is where I find the most inspiration, not only for the beautiful music but also because it gives such a range for expression and improvisation. You're welcome for traverse /baroque flute lessons!
Perhaps you have a desire to jump into a more "modern" genre, also a big treat to play! The repertoire which you find the most personal to you is where we will focus our attention!
Would you prefer a more modern approach? I'm no stranger to pop, jazz and rock music.
What do We do in the Lesson?
The lesson is always tailored to your specific musical interests, whether they are in line with classical studies or venture a bit further into other genres like baroque, jazz or pop. The basis of learning any instrument, in any style or genre, is technique. In our lessons, you will learn, amongst other things, technical studies, breathing exercises, scales, chords, legato, staccato, dynamics, as well as expanding your musicality with performance pieces suited to your current level and interests.
Personal Attention is the Key!
Whether you are an absolute beginner or you have already played the flute before and wish to take it back up again, both personal attention and a cosy, welcoming atmosphere will make for both a relaxing and instructive lesson. You will be able to clearly mark your progress, enabling you to become motivated with each and every lesson. Personal attention is key to honing your technique and fostering a passion for the music we aspire to make together.
Playing Together - Flute Duos
Music making is in the end what it's all about! The best way to do this, and not to mention the most historical of all pedagogical practices, is to play together! Our entire flute repertoire is filled with duets for 2 flutes, a perfect opportunity to develop your sound, breathing and overall technique. You will also get support when working on solo repertoire or orchestral excerpts, and even further fun begins when you wish to form a small ensemble to explore chamber music. So great to make music together!
