Finding a Flute Teacher

When considering which Flute teacher is for you, think about which style of music you would like to pursue. Most teachers will have one or two styles that they specialise in above others. Our listings provide information about the genre specialities of each teacher on their profile, so you can better assess which teacher is right for the ambitions you have for your musical journey.

We recommend compiling a shortlist of 2-3 teachers which you may like to work with and giving each of them a call to see their availability, introducing yourself and setting up an initial trial lesson.

07799 740 567

I studied Voice and Flute at London College of Music gaining an LLCM teaching (flute) and FLCM (voice) recital diplomas. Having taught flute both privately and  in primary and middle schools I found that I particularly enjoyed teaching beginners of any age.

What is really important to me is that my students enjoy playing rather than focusing on exams, although I am more than happy to enter pupils if required.  I have had 100% success in ABRSM exams and one very young student was accepted into the Centre for Young Musicians.

Alongside my flute teaching I also sing professionally.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I expect to pay for Music Tuition?

    There are many factors that affect the price of one-to-one music lessons, such as qualifications, experience, and whether the teacher travels to you or teachers from home. 

    The Musicians Union recommends an hourly rate of £35 for music teaching, however, in our experience, this is normally higher in London and you can expect to pay anything from £40-60 per hour.

    Most importantly, you should find the right teacher for you (or your child).

  • Are your teachers CRB checked?

    We don’t verify that teachers on our database are CRB checked, but most music teachers who have worked in the UK school system, will be required to maintain a regular CRB, and will always list it on their profile.

  • What's the typical length of a lesson?

    Lesson length is a common question we get asked.

    The first thing we suggest taking into consideration is the age of the student, we find that younger beginners, can benefit from regular lessons of 30 – 45 Minutes each, as their attention span is less than the typical adult.

  • I'm a Teacher, how can I be listed on your site?

    To be listed as a teacher on our site, please fill out the form, with all the relevant information completed. A few things we require, up to date pricing, locations, styles.

  • Do you have Teachers outside the North London area?

    As we’re based in North London and we specialise in providing a local service, we are at this time only listing teachers within boroughs in North London, our Teachers list and service coverage will be expanded upon over time.
