Kristen Huebner Flute Lessons in Utrecht

Flute Lessons Utrecht

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? Perhaps you have a desire to jump into a more "modern" genre? Also a big treat to play! 

All Ages Welcome

I'm Utrecht based flute teacher Kristen Huebner, I give lessons on both the "modern" and baroque flutes to children, teenagers and adults.

Classical to Pop

In love with classical music? Would you prefer a more modern approach? I'm no stranger to pop, jazz and rock music. 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.

What do we do in the Lesson?

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.

Beginner to advanced

Whether you are an absolute beginner and wish to learn reading music and play your first tunes on the flute, 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.

Mark Your Progress

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.

Traverse Lessons

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 in Utrecht! Read more.

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.

Ensemble - Orchestra

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!

Piano Accompaniment

Yes, I do accompany my students on the piano and sometimes the clavecimbel. Piano was my first instrument since the age of 8!

Online Flute Classes

I also offer fun, comprehensive and well structured online courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced players.

Verliefd op de traverso!

Kristen is heel enthousiast en inspirerend! Ik kwam bij haar om traverso te leren spelen (ik speelde al een tijd dwarsfluit), zij hielp mij om een traverso te kopen en heeft mij snel wegwijs gemaakt op dit nieuwe instrument. Door haar lessen heb ik kennis gemaakt met de diversiteit van de barokmuziek, en heb ik ontdekt hoe mooi het eigen karakter van een barokinstrument kan zijn. De lessen zijn altijd heel gezellig en leerzaam. We spelen veel samen, maar praten ook over de achtergrond van de muziek, de verschillende versieringen in de barokmuziek, etc, waardoor je de muziek die je speelt beter gaat begrijpen.

Excellent Fute Teacher!

Kris is an excellent teacher. I've taken many courses over the years, both personal and professional, and Kris is one of the best I've come across.

Love for Baroque Flute!

Kristen is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher! Already having played the silver flute for a long time, I decided to pick up the baroque flute two years ago. Kristen helped me buy a flute and through her lessons I quickly became confident on this new instrument. Her clear love for baroque music and period instruments has opened up a new world for me, exploring the many different styles of baroque (from early French to late German/Austrian). During her lessons we often play together, from which I learn a lot through imitation, but we also talk about the background of different pieces, ornamentations, etc, which helps me understand the music better.

Ze ziet jou echt...

Als klein meisje speelde ik, natuurlijk zoals zoveel andere meisje blokfluit, en toen ik wat groter was altfluit en daarna ben ik dwarsfluit gaan spelen, van mijn tiende tot en met mijn dertiende. Toen overleed mijn moeder en stopten er veel dingen in mijn leven, omdat het verdriet zoveel ruimte in nam. Nu 22 jaar later, een volwassen leven verder,  dacht ik ja, ik ga dat weer proberen, muziek spelen, een instrument bespelen is zo mooi,  en het is zo'n fijne en rustgevende bezigheid. Voor mijn brein, voor mijn lijf, voor mijn gemoedsrust. Dus ik zocht een fijne dwarsfluit docente bij mij in de buurt. Kristen sprong er uit met haar vriendelijke tekst. Een mailtje was gauw verstuurd. Een nog vriendelijker mail kreeg ik terug. De eerste afspraak voor een proefles was gemaakt en was echt een cadeautje.  Ik voelde me meteen op mijn gemak door Kristen haar gastvrijheid en fijne huis en muziekkamer. Kristen is lief, warm, fijn, geduldig, professioneel en buiten dat ook een fantastische fluitiste. Ze weet wat voor jou een goede oefening is en hoe je die oefeningen het beste thuis kunt doen. Ze ziet jou echt. En als laatste....ze is ook bijzonder gezellig om gewoon mee te kletsen over het leven en de liefde. Wat net zo belangrijk is. ;) Ik zou haar iedereen aanraden.

Life-enhancing journey!

I started taking flute lessons with Kris about four years ago. What started off as a mere pastime has turned into a life-enhancing journey.  Kris is positive, patient and inspiring, and we have covered everything from Baroque to Jazz in a most enjoyable and engaging manner. I would highly recommend Kris to any music student.

Ik vind het fantastisch!

Sinds enkele maanden heb ik dwarsfluitles van Kristen Huebner. Ik vind het fantastisch om les te krijgen van haar, ze is heel enthousiast en een goede lerares! Ik leer heel veel over het spelen van barokmuziek en over fluittechniek. Het is heel inspirerend en misschien ga ik ook de traverso spelen. Mijn plezier in fluitspelen is weer helemaal terug dank je wel Kristen!

Thank You Kristen!

Kristen brings an amazing and motivating energy to her flute classes or ensembles! She checks in with you, she adapts the class to your energy-levels! She is patient and truly enthusiastic about her students and her lessons! I really enjoyed observing and listening to her skilled playing of the flute and her passion for music. I appreciated to talk about the theory of the music but also hear about meditative techniques for better playing! I will miss these lessons! Thank you Kristen!
