Tips for the Beginner

Girl playing fluteI’ve prepared a colourful sheet to remind you how to start your practice. You want to play as often as you would have breakfast – so every day!! At the beginning 5 – 10 minutes is fine but once you can play a few notes 10 – 15 minutes is better.

You may get a little dizzy after 10 minutes, don’t worry, it’s just that your brain is unused to processing so much oxygen. Stop and go and do something else then go back and try again later. Tell me in your lesson if this is happening to you and I’ll help you. It’s a bit like hyperventilating and sometimes you’re just pushing out too much air.

Here’s a fun reminder for you to print off and keep! Tips for the Beginner Flautist
